Arsenal managed to put three past FC Koln in the group stage fixture of their Europa League campaign as they managed to register a victory in their very first match of the tournament. After a dismal performance in the last term, the Gunners ended up in the 5th spot and were compelled to stay out of the Champions League draw for the first time since 1998, as they qualified for the Europa League this season.
The North Londoners have faced difficulties in the new season in the Premier League, having already been defeated twice in their first four matches of the competition. However, they won their last match in the competition against Bournemouth by 3-0, which might work as a morale booster as they go into the weekend’s game against Chelsea.
The man in charge at the Emirates Stadium, Arsene Wenger, has delivered positive results in a much lesser number for the liking of the fans and has been heavily criticised for his planning and strategies in the recent times.
With his job in the line of fire, there is a possibility that the North London club might have a new coach at their helm in the form of Maurizio Sarri, who is presently the coach of the Italian Serie A side Napoli.
The Italian mastermind has been in the charge of the Italian club since 2015 and is having a pretty good time so far, coaching the side with ample efficiency and bringing results. He is one of the most highly regarded coaches in the present situation and is well versed in the art of getting the best out of his players.
Sarri has attracted the eyes of a number of big name clubs from all over Europe with his style of coaching, including the likes of West Ham United and Arsenal from the Premier League. In case their current coach Arsene Wenger is not able to get better results for Arsenal with the season still in its preliminary stage, there is a good possibility of Sarri taking over his reign as the manager of the side in the forthcoming days.
The 58-year-old Italian tactician started his career from the local clubs in Pescara and gradually made it into the top flight, having brought in his own style into the Serie A and leading his side Napoli to a number of important victories in the competition. He is an experienced manager at the highest level but can he replicate and replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates?
