Arsenal assistant Steve Round believes the Gunners have "turned the corner" with the appointment of Mikel Arteta as head coach.

The Arsenal squad are doing fitness work at home whilst Arteta is in regular contact with them, the football executive team and his coaches as he makes plans for the return of football.

"It's a fantastic club with a top manager," Round told the Hartlepool Mail.

Arteta took over as Gunners boss on December 20 and had lost just two of his first 16 matches in charge before coronavirus, not least his own diagnosis with it, forced football across Europe to be suspended earlier this month.

"All the phone calls I'm having with all the members of the board and all my technical staff, all the coaching staff, all the players, how aware and how encouraged they all are to try to help, to try to be on board with the situation and to try to make things easier for the club has been amazing.

Round is one of three assistants, alongside Freddie Ljungberg and Albert Stuivenberg, that Arteta appointed to aid his transition into management and the 49-year-old, who has also worked with Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and Sam Allardyce, expects great things from the Arsenal boss.

In terms of results the Spaniard started slowly as Unai Emery's permanent successor, winning just two of his first eight matches in charge, but even in those early days there was a clear upswing in performances from his Arsenal side and results were beginning to improve as the second half of his tenure brought six wins.
