Arsenal: Arteta would love to see Wenger around more
Gunners finding their form
Arteta's team have recovered well from losing their opening three games of the campaign and the coach believes his players could benefit from Wenger's wisdom on a more regular basis.
Wenger, who is Fifa's chief of global football development, managed the Gunners from 1996 until 2018 and has not been seen at a game since.
Boss would welcome icon around
Arteta signed for Wenger in 2011 and continued to play for Arsenal until he retired in 2016 and took up a position as Pep Guardiola's assistant at Manchester City.
However, he thinks his former boss to be a huge influence on their current crop of players.
He said: "If it was not for him I would not be in the position I am today and I wouldn't have enjoyed the career I had.
"I would like him to be more present at the club."
"I think the players would be inspired to have him around and I think for the club it would be a huge boost."
"It was so intense for him for over 20 years and you need to get away a little bit, but I think it would be so beneficial for all parties to have him more present."
