Leeds United winger Jack Harrison has raved about Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to Sky Sports.
Harrison, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, worked with Arteta for a brief period of time at Manchester City.
Arteta was then working as a coach at City, while the 23-year-old has been on loan at Leeds from the Citizens since the summer of 2018.
Leeds will take on Arsenal at Elland Road in the Premier League on Sunday evening.
Ahead of match, Harrison, who returned to the Whites on a loan deal after spending the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Elland Road, has spoken highly of Arteta, who was appointed the Arsenal manager in December 2019.
Harrison told Sky Sports about Arteta:”I only worked with him for one pre-season and watching the way he worked alongside Pep (Guardiola) was inspirational, watching all the advice they gave to the players was something I really tried to learn something from.
“It was only a short experience being part of their pre-season but I’ve been really grateful for that, just learning how they conduct their training sessions.
“He [Arteta] wouldn’t even remember saying certain things to me and other players around me as well. It was only small to him but it can make a big difference to us as players especially being so young and wanting to learn so much as well.
“You can tell he’s very intelligent, he knows a lot about the game and working along with Pep you can see why he’s got the reputation he has so it will be another interesting one going into this weekend.”
Both Leeds and Arsenal lost in the Premier League before the two-week international break and will be determined to bounce back.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side play a very attacking football, while the Gunners have a similar approach to matches.
There should be a few goals in the match at Elland Road, and it should be a very entertaining game of football this weekend.
