What Mikel Arteta Said before The Match Against Wayne Rooney Led MLS All Star

The Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said “I love the idea. For me as the Arsenal coach to play against the MLS All-Stars is great.

“I love the experience, I think it’s great for the players to gather together and play in the same team. If I was a player for sure, I would want to experience that.


“Hopefully the rhythm won’t be different and our rhythm will be better than theirs. That’s what we are hoping and we always want to play our way, be dominant and it doesn’t matter who we play against, that’s the attitude that we have.

“It’s very early in pre-season and we know that. The teams we’re going to be playing in the next few days are going to be very different. But this is going to be a challenge.
