David Luiz: Arteta knows football and he can improve every single player

David Luiz has backed Mikel Arteta as the right man for the job after his first win as Arsenal manager but admitted it will take time to get everything right.

Arteta led his side to a 2-0 win against Manchester United on Wednesday evening, giving Arsenal their first win at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League since early October.

Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis bagged for the hosts in the first half, while a disciplined Luiz impressed in defence.

And man-of-the-match Luiz was frank in his assessment of where Arsenal are.

He told BT Sport: 'It was great. We have to be humble enough to admit, physically we were not ready. So we showed that today when physically you aren't there you need heart.

'This team is in the moment to change a lot of things. We are going to do big things in the future, but step by step.'


While he preached caution, he did admit he is confident that former Manchester City assistant manager Arteta is the right man for the job at the Emirates.

'I think Mikel is a great coach,' Luiz continued. 'He knows football.

'I believe in this philosophy and he can improve every single player. In life, when you are happy the results can be totally different.

'Our season isn't there, we started really bad. Things can change and (we) still (have) some titles to fight for, and improvement for the team and the future. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
