Arsenal begin search for Wenger replacement

Arsenal have begun their search for potential replacements for Arsene Wenger today.

The long standing Gunners boss has been on the receiving end of fresh criticism this week following the dismal defeat to Manchester City in the League Cup final on Sunday.

Last season saw the fans embark on a prolonged period of #WengerOut campaigns, with banners stretching far and wide across the globe as they made their feelings felt.

At the time, Wenger was coming to the end of his contract, with him keeping his cards close to his chest regarding his position in charge at the Emirates.

The Frenchman disappointed a large section of the Arsenal fan base with the news that he had decided to continue on as the longest serving manager in the club’s history.

Things have been no better for the Gunners this season, as they currently sit 27 points behind league leaders Manchester City and 10 points behind North London rivals Tottenham who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualifying position.

They also were humiliated by City in the League Cup final, leaving their season in tatters and the manager’s position under threat.

According to The Telegraph, Arsenal are now set to review Arsene Wenger’s position in charge of the club, and are looking at potential replacements.

They claim that former Arsenal midfielder, and current Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta is one of the candidates under consideration, along with Monaco’s Leonardo Jardim, Celtic’s Brendan Rodgers and Germany’s Joachim Low.

Other candidates include Paulo Fonseca, Carlo Ancelotti, and Thierry Henry, who recently admitted he would jump at the chance to manage his former side.
