It no longer news that Arsenal Arsene Wenger is going to step down from being the club’s manager by the end of the season. Barely one-hour after the Frenchman’s decision, the Gunners fans and former players took to social media and sports programs to give their thoughts on how they felt over Wenger’s departure.
Just as the fans, Arsenal boards also showered praise on the 68-year-old, who has been at the Emirates stadium for 22 years. With Wenger’s decision, it is inevitable that Arsenal will get a new manager in the summer and there have been a lot of suggestions from soccer pundits, fans on who should become the next boss.
It was reported on Monday via Daily Mirror that former Arsenal striker Parlor wants Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez as Wenger’s successor. The Sports Journal also claims that Spain international football expert Balague wants former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique due to his experience.
Despite reports linking him to Italy coaching job, former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti remains the perfect man to take the club to another level in the upcoming season.
Ancelotti is not new to the league’s style of play, therefore there will be little or no time to spend on learning how things are being done in the League.
Experience is another factor which made the Italian manager the best manager for the Gunners job. Ancelotti won the Premier League and Champions trophy for Chelsea during his time at Stamford Bridge. He was also a Champions League and La Liga winner while he was at Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite being shown the exit door at Bayern Munich, the 58-year-old tactician still managed to win the Bundesliga trophy, therefore, showing his ability to do well under intense pressure to deliver.
Arsenal are known as a team who are not strong at the back of the pitch throughout this season, but Carlo Ancelotti will surely find a lasting solution to the problem before the start of next season should he eventually win the race for the job.
