There was once a period when the The hierarchical duo was thought to disagree as the club’s leadership was under continuous scrutiny, and many felt that one, or both, would soon face the hurdle if Arsenal did not go through a change of fortune. But Arteta has squashed any notion of tensions between the pair after speaking to SkySports (dating via Soccer, London);
“When we go through difficult times he (Edu) has been the best because difficult times are when you see the real face of people, who they are, what their values are and if you share those values or not.
We have worked together incredibly well.
Having to make so many decisions that I am sure that in football it is not easy not to crash. We have done it in an excellent way and I am very proud of the people we have in our organization.
When I speak of unity it is because unity brings synergy and that happens with Edu or the CEO or my players ”.

The terrible start to the campaign made Arsenal fans wonder if Arteta and Edu, or both, were fit for positions of power in the Emirates.
Also, questionable past deals for the likes of Willian, Cédric Soares and Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson, were under the microscope, while handling situations surrounding William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi were convenient sticks to beating the duo.
But after the current form has played out the way it has, Arteta and Edu are largely praised for a summer transfer record that is, in a word, stellar.
The offers to Sambi Lokonga, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Ødegaard, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White and Nuno Tavares for a combined total of ~ £ 142 million mark one of the best summer spells of any Premier League club in recent times regarding to value for money according to current evidence.
While there are still many things that can go wrong for Arsenal and hardly a guarantee that each summer will be as efficient, the jury is currently ruling in favor of the Arteta-Edu regime.
