According to the media, manager Guardiola said, “(At the time of coaching) I told the players and other staff several times. If one particular team (Arsenal) makes an offer to coach, he may leave.”
“Everyone has a dream. I know that Arteta went to his club, a club with fans who support him. Arteta was the captain at Arsenal during his career, and he loves Arsenal very much,” he said.
Guardiola also told an anecdote. “When Arteta was a coach, he would cheer and jump when we scored, except for one team. When I jumped and cheer when we scored against Arsenal, Arteta just sat there,” he explained.
“It’s kind of like the relationship between me and FC Barcelona,” said Guardiola. (In the same vein) Athletes have to leave if they are not happy, because life is too short.”
