FIVE candidates for Arsenal job
Arsene Wenger has to go and it’s time Arsenal start building a team to win trophies.
The greatest manager in Arsenal’s history is caught in the middle of the shambolic state of affairs at the Emirates, but does not deserve the abuse he’s receiving from so-called Arsenal fans.
Even with help from Wenger, the board needs to look beyond the Frenchman and scan through potential candidates for the job.
For Wenger it is over. The fans should be grateful for what he’s done.
Candidates for the Arsenal job
Joachim Low – Germany
Arsenal should not have left Germany on Wednesday night without Low. The 2014 World Cup winner is a modern thinking coach; a thinker, motivator and winner just like Wenger of old.
Low is credited for redefining German football following post Euro 2004 gloom, and that is the sort of boost needed at the Emirates.
The modern game has left Wenger behind, whereas Low is very much with the times.
Diego Simeone – Atletico Madrid
Born winner delivering Atletico Madrid the LaLiga title in 2014 despite the power of Barcelona and Real Madrid. However, there is one drawback which is his lack of English.
Arsenal fans may also find it difficult to warm to his defensive approach.
Massimiliano Allergi – Juventus
This man lead AC Milan to their first Serie A title in 7 years before winning three in a row with Juventus, who he also took to a European Cup final.
Mina Rzouki recently told the European Football Show that she believes that Allegri is a better manager than Antonio Conte.
Thomas Tuchel – Borussia Dortmund
Plays attacking football but is struggling this term as Dortmund sit fourth in the Bundesliga. Arsenal fans will be familiar with that.
Eddie Howe – Bournemouth
Firm believer of entertaining paying fans at all costs, which doesn’t say much about his winning mentality at the very top. Seen as one of the brightest couches coming through in the UK but there’s still a lack of experience, especially on the European stage.
VERDICT: Massimiliano Allergi would be the safest bet for Arsenal. Joachim Low a near second.
