With rumours surrounding Pep Guardiola’s future at Bayern Munich, we look at the five reasons why Arsenal should hire the ex-Barcelona man.
Liverpool rocked as Sturridge surgery will keep him out for five months
Chelsea tell Arsenal world class stopper will cost them £10m
Man Utd frustrated as Mourinho sends players on holiday ahead of Liverpool match
1. 10 years without a Premier League title.
Let’s face it, it’s been far too long.
Wenger has been great for Arsenal in the past, but it’s time to move on.
Guardiola, following on from his success with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, is the man to take over and deliver the Premier League title to the Emirates.
2. Guardiola’s desire to manage in the EPL
Guardiola has previously expressed his desire to manage in England one day, so why not Arsenal?
The Gunners will face stiff competition from Manchester City though as it seems Manuel Pellegrini will be pushed out the exit door.
While it’s doubtful that Arsenal will be able to match City in a financial sense, Guardiola will be attracted to the challenge that Arsenal presents.
3. Arsenal provides a new challenge for Guardiola
Guardiola has spent time with the best of the best, but now it’s time for him to show he can make a good team great.
You get the sense that the former Barcelona captain will thrive in such a role and Arsenal’s current potential will allow Guardiola to make great strides in a relatively small amount of time.
4. Guardiola’s connections with world-class players
Guardiola has managed some of the world’s best players, and they all seem to love him.
There’s no doubt whatsoever that he could pull some strings and bring some superb talent to the Emirates.
Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski have both spoken of their desire to play in England, and Guardiola could be the man to get them there.
5. Arsenal’s footballing philosophy is in line with Guardiola’s
There’s no doubt that Arsenal play attractive football, and Guardiola’s Barcelona side were simply beautiful to watch.
Guardiola’s football contains both style and substance, and that’s something long-suffering Gunners fans are craving.
