Arteta picks GOAT managers
Speaking to GOAL, he said: “I’m going to go to Jose, master tactician, I’m going to put him in there. The way he motivated the players, the way he made them feel that the world was against them.
Arteta selected three GOATs: Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola, and Sir Alex Ferguson.
When explaining his picks, he said: “I’m going to take him [Ancelotti] to the GOAT category.
“In my opinion, he’s done it in many different countries with very different cultures and types of clubs… for me, he’s got it all!”
Arteta also acknowledged Sir Alex Ferguson for his managerial achievements, specifically highlighting his role in rebuilding Manchester United from the ground up after he was appointed.
This recognition is a testament to Sir Alex Ferguson’s managerial prowess and success in shaping the destiny of the club during his tenure.
