EPL: It was weird to see Wenger in Arsenal dressing room – Arteta admits


Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said it was “weird” to have former boss Arsene Wenger back at the Emirates.

Wenger watched on as the Gunners beat West Ham 3-1 on Boxing Day.

It was the first time the 73-year-old was back at the club since he stepped down at the end of the 2017/2018 campaign after 22 years.

Arteta, speaking at the OXford stadium, also revealed Wenger visited the dressing room after the game.

“You could feel that he was emotional, that he really enjoyed [it],” Arteta told ITV.

“And I think he felt the love from everybody at the football club, the appreciation of what he’s done. And it was weird to see him around the dressing room, but at the same time, it was a beautiful day for everybody.”
