EPL: Mikel Arteta tells Brighton manager De Zerbi, "Your kind is what we want."

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, has stated that managers like Brighton's Roberto De Zerbi are what the Premier League wants because he is one of the best in the world.

Arsenal host Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday, and Arteta has high praise for De Zerbi and his Seagulls, who were defeated 5-1 by Everton last weekend.

However, following the game against Everton, De Zerbi issued a warning to Arsenal, telling the north London club to prepare for a completely different Brighton team this weekend.

Brighton are seventh in the Premier League table and still have a good chance of finishing in European places.

De Zerbi has improved the team, making them more of a potent attacking threat and Arteta described the Seagulls as a joy to watch when they play.

“They are a really complicated side. The way they are playing under Roberto and the coaching staff is remarkable, it’s just a joy to watch them play,” Arteta told his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“What he’s brought to the league is a different idea.

“This is what we want, we want to be the best league in the world, we need the best managers and the best players,” he added.
