Speaking in a press conference, the Arsenal great said “Pep is the reference, for me, I’m not saying for everyone.

“There’s no right or wrong; that’s the reference for me. We learned how to play the game when I went to Barcelona under him.

“With Pep you can talk about the game; he will not even go to sleep and will still talk about the game. You will fall asleep and he’s still talking.”

He added that “The invention he had in the game; he’s well ahead of the game, I saw it closely.

“You learn from people. They inspire you. But you also need to put your own little mix in it.

“Talking about the managers that I had I learned with a lot of them, every single one of them.

“Whether they challenged me, whether sometimes they were doing the wrong stuff. That’s when you learn the most — when things are not going well.”
