Arsenal Want Former Captain To Replace Arsene Wenger: No Need For The Gunners To Take The Gamble!

The end of the 2017/18 season is almost upon us and the biggest question lies in who will be taking the Arsenal managerial seat? Arsene Wenger’s 22-year reign is set to end at the Emirates after this season and replacements are already being lined up.

Arsenal’s chief executive have reportedly expressed heavy interest in appointing former Arsenal player, Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard is currently serving as a joint-assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and has picked up quite a lot of top-pedigree managing experience.

Celtic boss and ex-Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers is also being considered for the position along with a bunch of well-established names from Europe.

Arteta is slowly picking up on all the nicks and tricks from his highly decorated compatriot at the Etihad. City have just recorded the double for the 2017/18 season, including the Premier League title.

The development and rebuilding process is bound to rub off on the 36-year-old along with the experiences of managing a champion side. However, it has only been two seasons at the inner circle of the game.

Arteta has still not risen through the required ranks to even be considered for the position. There is a lot that goes into building a full-sized leader. Even younger and less established footballers like current TSG Hoffenheim manager, Julian Nagelsmann had to undergo the entire development process before being appointed as head coach.

Andres Villas-Boas was never a professional footballer but was integrated into the coaching scene at a very young age at FC Porto.

Wenger has managed the club for over two decades and almost built the current status of the side from the ground up. He has put together a system which could be taken over a well rounded tactical head who in turn could resurrect the side to title-winning ways.

And for that Arteta is not the man for the job. No matter how bold Gazidis and his team might be in their approach for a replacement, it would be wise to start weighing all the pros and cons before making an instinctive leap.

The post-Alex Ferguson-period at Manchester United have been full of confusion and unnecessary expenditures which in the end have not delivered much in terms of trophies. The Gunners do not need a similar story to happen over the next few seasons, especially after the struggles they have had to endure this season.
