Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger set to be replaced by Bundesliga boss
RB Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has confirmed Arsenal’s interest in him to replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.
Earlier this week, The Sun linked the 49-year-old Austrian boss with a move to the Gunners should Arsene Wenger step down at the end of the season.
The link was believed by many to be nothing more than gossip or speculation.
However, it has now been confirmed that there is ‘a lot of truth’ in the story as Hasenhuttl told the press ahead of Leipzig’s Bundesliga match against Schalke tomorrow, that the story was in fact well-researched.
“It was a well-researched story,” Hasenhuttl said.
“There was a lot of truth to it.
“I have heard of worse fates than succeeding the longest-serving manager in England. It’s not damaging my reputation, is it?”
“We don’t have to put too much thought into it,” he added.
“I have found my luck here.”
