Every word Mikel Arteta said on Declan Rice’s fitness, Lionel Messi transfer and MLS All-Stars

You’re in a group chat with some other US coaches. Do you take any principles from American sport into your coaching at Arsenal?

Yeah sure. It’s great to be connected with coaches that have various experiences with other sports, in other leagues, in other countries. We have a group where we chat about many different topics. For me it’s really rich to understand other sports, other cultures and other ways of living. It’s been a big learning process for me.

How much are you looking forward to playing in the MLS All Stars game?

Yeah tomorrow’s experience is going to be great. It starts tonight obviously with all the challenges that the players have to do against each other. It’s going to be a very special, but unpredictable game because we’re going to change a lot of players. It’s great to be a part of and I hope we can give something back to the fans to share.

How do you see the MLS and what do you expect it to be going forward?

The history and the way the league has developed in the last 25 years is phenomenal. Over the past few years the traction it has got in Europe and obviously now it will be taken much further by getting top talent and the greatest footballer ever in this planet. It’s going to put this league in the spotlight and I think it was a very clever move and something really, really good. Not only for the league but for everyone connected to it.
