Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes the club have appointed the right man in Mikel Arteta but says the board must give the Spaniard the time he needs to succeed at the Emirates.

The Spaniard replaced Unai Emery at the club last December after the former Paris Saint-Germain was sacked due to an awful run of form.

Arsenal’s results have picked up under Arteta but not so considerably that the Spaniard’s start could be deemed a success.

However, Wright believes improvements have been made in a number of areas that will eventually lead to the club getting better results.

If we’re looking at somebody as a coach with ambition and drive and determination then, without a shadow of a doubt, we’ve got the right person,’ Wright told SPORF.

‘I think you can see that with the intensity, the energy and the passion that the players have got.

‘I did an interview with David Luiz the other day and when you listen to him speak about Mikel Arteta and what he wants and what he expects and the fitness and the drive that the players now have and you can see that there was a change at Arsenal.

‘People are saying we’ve drawn a lot of games but there was a change in the output of the players, the intensity, the determination to try and execute the manager’s philosophy.

‘And I think, as time goes by, hopefully with help from the owners, he will be somebody that if he is stuck with which we probably will then we will be going in the right direction, without a doubt.

‘He’s somebody that’s driven to be successful. You can see that in him’
