Arsene Wenger. Bayern Munich. Linked. Next Manager.
Four phrases we did not expect to be writing in sentences any time soon here at The Football Faithful, but that is seemingly where we are in the world today, with footballing giants around Europe seemingly willing to wipe the last decade from history and be interested in the services of the former Arsenal manager.
Arsene Wenger’s credentials as a top coach and an Arsenal legend are undoubted, with the Frenchman’s three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups making him one of the most successful managers in English football history.
However, the majority of his success came in his first 10 years at Highbury/The Emirates, with the final 12 years descending into what seemed like an acceptance of mediocrity, and an inability to change.
Despite that though, since his resignation from his long-time role in North London, Wenger has been linked with a whole host of top jobs, including Real Madrid, Monaco, and now, Bayern Munich.
According to reports in Germany, Wenger is under consideration to replace current Bayern boss Niko Kovac, who has had a torrid time in charge of the Bavarian side, who currently sit in fifth place in the Bundesliga, and trail league leaders Borussia Dortmund by nine points.
Bayern suffered their latest setback at the weekend, when they blew a 3-1 lead to draw with relegation-threatened Fortuna.
According to the Telegraph, Wenger would be interested in taking over at the Allianz should the opportunity arise.
We bet you are sir, we bet you are!
