Pochettino declares love for Arsenal star Arteta

The Argentine has been linked with a summer move for Mikel Arteta and admits his relationship with the midfielder is a very good one after their time together at PSG

Mauricio Pochettino has become a hero to Tottenham fans this season after leading them to an unlikely title bid, but some may be questioning his loyalty after he declared his love for an Arsenal star.

The former Southampton boss has been linked with a move for Mikel Arteta this summer, but he may have incurred some wrath from Spurs fans for going a little too over the top in his affection for the Gunners midfielder.

The pair played together at Paris Saint-Germain, and Pochettino has revealed that he has a very special friendship with the Spaniard.

Despite this admission, Pochettino was more candid when discussing any possible transfer, saying: "We have a very good relationship. The thing is rumours and you know I never speak about rumours."
