Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal fell like a pack of cards against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night in the 1st leg of the Champions League last-16 encounter, and calls for the Frenchman’s head have never been louder.
Arsenal are on the brink of failing to progress beyond this stage in Europe for the 7th consecutive season, while only 2 F.A Cups have been won since 2004 as the Gunners continue to struggle domestically as well.
The 67-year-old has spent 20 years at the north London side and after his recent failures, it’s widely agreed and believed it’s high time he left the club.
This season could be Wenger’s last at Emirates as power looks likely to change hands, and here are 3 replacements Arsenal should look to sign to replace him.
3. Eddie Howe
While getting an English manager isn’t a priority, the Bournemouth head coach represents a new breed of home-grown modern day tacticians and is a very exciting option for a lot of reasons.
The 39-year-old has had to make do with mostly average quality players and signings in his 9 years of management, yet he has proved his worth and it would be certain and assuring that such a manager will be able to do much better with big players under his charge.
How he has been able to keep Jack Wilshere on his feet, making him regain his potential is a huge achievement, and everyone saw how solid his team was with Chelsea’s Ake in his ranks. He was close to recording a win against Arsenal, while Bournemouth’s victory over Liverpool hints at some of the things that can be expected if he’s given a big project like that of the north London club’s.
