Five managers who could step in if Arsenal decide to dispense with Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal’s defeat to Stoke City this weekend has reopened the debate about the future of Arsene Wenger – a discussion that seems to come up every time that the Gunners lose a game as it begins to look increasingly likely that the Frenchman’s long reign at the Emirates Stadium could be coming to an end in the near future.
Whilst we do not necessarily subscribe to the idea that Wenger must go, it cannot be doubted that a significant section of the club’s fanbase have come around to this way of thinking.
With that in mind, who could take over if Wenger and Arsenal do decide that it is time to part ways? Here are five potential, realistic replacements:
Rudi Garcia (AS Roma)
Garcia has a rapidly growing reputation on the European football scene on account of his fine achievements with Lille, who he led to an unprecedented Ligue 1 title, and now at AS Roma, who Garcia has rebuilt from alsorans into a side capable of challenging Juventus at the top of Serie A and holding their own in the Champions League.
