Arsenal Reach “Heights Of Lunacy” With Managerial Replacement Decision: Take Your Medication, Gazidis!

Arsenal’s Chief Operational Executive, Ivan Gazidis has chosen Mikel Arteta to be the man to replace Arsene Wenger in the managerial seat. It seems that the Spaniard has beaten out almost every one of his decorated competitors to the position due to his previous involvement with the club. Gazidis wants a man who will implement the club’s values by developing young talent and setting up the side for an illustrious future.

This might just be another one of the 53-year-old’s delusions as he has had plenty during his stay at North London. Arteta is clearly an inexperienced candidate with no competence for the pressures of the job. He has served just over 2 seasons in the coaching position at Manchester City and is still due to learn the knicks and tricks of the job.

A manager is someone who not only sets the tone for the type of football the club plays but also the way in which it operates from the inside. Arteta is still only at the assistant coach stage to Pep Guardiola, let alone be a coach of any of the City youth teams.

He has still not broken through the necessary ranks to even be considered for the position. There is a lot that goes into building a competent leader. It is unbecoming of the Gunners board to cave for more familiar options rather than testing the scary waters of European football.

There is no guideline which dictates that age has anything to do with being a leader but history certainly agrees. Take a look at the prospects of Ex-Chelsea manager, Andres Villas-Boas.

Despite winning the league with FC Porto, he eventually struck out in the English top-flight and ended up in China. TSG Hoffenheim manager, Julian Nagelsmann has just started to establish himself as a top coach but remains untested in the Premier League waters.

Both of them would have been better options since they have undergone the correct training process. Arteta, on the other hand, has not.

Following into the shoes of Wenger’s 22-year reign is a mammoth task, which even veteran names like Massimiliano Allegri will find challenging to face. Not only will Arteta be heaped with the pressures of unfamiliar territory, his career as a future manager will end before it even starts.

He is still young and is taking all the right steps under Guardiola at City. Witnessing a title-winning squad and learning from one of the best managers of the modern game is far better than being thrown into a den full of lions.

Experienced campaigners like David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal could not handle it right at Manchester United, such is the arduous pressure of the top job at an English club of the stature of Arsenal or Chelsea or Manchester City. So it might not be the best idea for the Arsenal board to hand over the reins of the North London club in the fairly inexperienced hands of someone like Mikel Arteta.
