After retiring from his professional playing career, Mikel Arteta made a seamless transition into the world of coaching by joining Manchester City as an assistant coach under the esteemed guidance of Pep Guardiola. Arteta worked alongside Guardiola for three years, contributing significantly to the team’s success.
