Speaking to Stadium Astro about Arteta’s reign so far, Adams said: ‘He’s the best he’s seen in a long time. He really does understand the game, he expresses himself; he’s very confident.
‘It’s his first job, for God’s sake, he’s doing a remarkable, remarkable job.’
‘He [Arteta] has got fantastic ability to work with this team.
‘He puts hours into the training pitch. He’s his own man, if Ozil’s not in his thinking, he’s out, it’s as simple as that. I can’t speak highly enough of the guy.

Arteta led his side to 1-0 triumph over Manchester United on Sunday to see Arsenal beat a ‘big six’ team away from home for the first time in 29 league games.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang provided Arteta’s men with the iconic winner by converting from the penalty spot after Paul Pogba fouled Hector Bellerin in the box.
Subsequently, Arsenal have moved up to ninth in the Premier League table.
Arteta will be eager to see the Gunner finish the 2020-2021 season in the top four and achieve a Champions League spot.
