'So far so good' - Kanu provides Arteta rating as Arsenal manager

Despite rating the Spaniard high so far, the Nigeria legend feels the Gunners must improve to end the season well

Nwankwo Kanu has delivered his verdict on Mikel Arteta as Arsenal boss, and claimed the Spaniard will come good in time.

The 37-year-old, who played for the Gunners between 2011 and 2016, replaced Unai Emery at the Emirates Stadium midway through a topsy-turvy season.

After losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea, Arteta has led the North Londoners to seven-game unbeaten run, with three wins and four draws.

Although Arsenal are currently 11th in the English top-flight log with 31 points from 25 league outings, the ex-Nigeria international gave the tactician a pass mark, while hoping that the team keeps improving.
