Arteta “not keen” on Pep-Klopp comparison

Lampard and Arteta will go toe to toe in lifting the FA Cup trophy on Saturday night.

Arteta is full of respect and admiration for the fantastic career his managerial compatriot had in his playing days and he is looking forward to  facing him.

The Spaniard is not too keen on comparison of him and Lampard to Guardiola and Klopp saying their are still young coaches with a lack of experience.

"About Frank as a player, absolutely top," . "I think the consistency he was able to play for that many years in the position he plays at such a big club and doing what he did was incredible. Big credit to him on that.

"As a manager, he has shown since Derby the kind of ambition and person he has and the way he encourages his team to play. We are both young, both trying to learn our position so I wouldn't like to compare to the two managers you mention."

The 38-year old Coach also concedes that winning the FA Cup trophy will be an uplift in his side’s development.

"It generates trust when you're winning titles," 

 "It generates moments when together you go through good emotions. It brings everyone together, you have memories, there's a lot of things about winning a trophy that is so positive for any group and when you're in a process it makes it even more important. We have a great opportunity, so let's go for it."
