Mikel Arteta Amatriain (born 26 March 1982) is a retired Spanish professional footballer who played as a midfielder. He currently works for Manchester City as an assistant coach under Pep Guardiola.

Arteta started out as a trainee with FC Barcelona but could not break his way into the first team and was eventually loaned to Paris Saint-Germain in the French league. He was then signed by Scottish Premier League club Rangers with whom he would win the domestic treble of the league, Scottish Cup and League Cup in the season of 2002–03. After success in Scotland, Arteta moved back to Spain and to his Basque roots to play for Real Sociedad but failed to establish himself within the first team and was loaned to Everton for the remainder of the 2004–05 season, prior to signing permanently in July 2005. He then made a permanent transfer to Arsenal in 2011, and was appointed captain of the club in August 2014. Arteta won two FA Cups and two FA Community Shields with Arsenal, before his contract expired at the end of the 2015-16 season.
