Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is happy for Pep Guardiola over his new deal at Manchester City.

Arteta worked with Guardiola as his No2 before leaving for the Gunners last season.

"I'm very pleased for him," said Arteta.

"He's never been so long at a football club . The fact he is extending his contract means he is extremely happy there.

"He is finding his players, he feels valued, he has the chemistry that I know with the players, the fans and the owners.

"Knowing him and his ambitions and how competitive he is, unfinished business means he wants to win every competition, every year for sure. If he needs to win the four domestic trophies again and he can do it he will try to do it.

"Obviously Europe is a massive thing. He really wants to move the club towards that Champions League win and that's in his way. I think medium to long term that was one of the things he wanted to achieve."
