Arsenal have been urged not to sack Wenger if there is no credible replacement lined up. This was the warning of former Arsenal star Ray Parlour who advised the club not to sack Wenger because there is no world class manager available to replace him.
Wenger’s future have been a constant feature in the rumour mill with reports claiming the French man could be axed this summer. Wenger was able to put those rumours to bed by claiming he will see out his current contract at the club meaning he’d be around for another season at least.
However, reports concerning his future has begun to resurface with the team battling to secure a top four spot but Parlour believes Wenger shouldn’t be sacked as there is no super manager to replace him.
“I don’t think he’ll leave, I think he’ll be there next season,” Parlour, who was speaking on behalf of Vauxhall, the ex-gunner said as quoted by the Standard Sports.
“It’s a situation where Wenger will decide when he leaves, and he’s been there so long he probably deserves that.
“But it might be his last season next year, at the end of his contract. At the moment, it’s going to be difficult for the board to get rid of Arsene.
“You always worry about which manager comes in next. Who would you have? Jurgen Klopp’s gone to Liverpool, Pep Guardiola to Man City. There isn’t a huge amount of managers out there.
“It’s a big decision they’ve got to make. If you’re going to sack a manager you’ve got to have a plan. And if they don’t have a plan then they’ve got to keep him.”
