Mikel Arteta grew up watching Diego Maradona in his prime - and says we have lost a true great after the Argentine's death earlier this week.

"It is a really sad moment, I was big fan of him," our manager said. 

"I know a lot of people who were very close with him as well and he was someone who inspired a whole city wherever he played. 

"He had this attraction, a capacity to generate different emotions to any other football player and I think we all, as kids, were attached to him and now he is gone. 

"Thank you so much for what he has done for this sport and I think a lot of young kids at the time wanted to become a footballer because of players like him."
