Like ya dunno what he’s going to be like recruitment wise so why does it even factor in?
I said: "Because if the manager we appoint has any idea about the style of football that will take the club forward, he will seek [i.e. to identify] those players who will make that happen." -
Whoever the manager is will need to be sure that players are brought in to fit the style of play he wants to adapt, so it stands to reason that he will want a major say over recruitment. As for Arteta, if he is considered, we might expect him to want the style of play with which he is associated. Hopefully, he would seek to develop young players like Lookman, as a manager/coach, not push them out the door to develop elsewhere. He would be good for the young players, IMO.
