Video: ‘You Never Know’ – Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta Discusses the Possibility of Managing PSG in the Future

Arsenal FC manager Mikel Arteta is known for his time in the Premier League, having played for Everton FC and The Gunners. However, before heading to England, a young Arteta spent one season with Paris Saint-Germain on a loan deal from FC Barcelona. 

The Spain international made 31 appearances for the capital club in the 2001-02 season, where he scored two goals and registered three assists. As a result, there’s a particular fondness for the French giants since it’s the first club he received significant playing time in his young career. 

During an interview with beIN Sports France, Arteta answered a question on whether he sees himself managing Les Parisiens someday. 

“PSG has an incredible team. The manager Mauricio Pochettino is a coach that I am close to because I played with him at PSG. He is a very strong manager, and I hope that he will win many titles with PSG,” Arteta said.

“I love Paris. I love Paris; I have very good memories from over there. It was my first club as a professional. The club is always in my heart. You never know, but I have a lot of work to do (at Arsenal).”
