Sadly for Arsene Wenger, he will leave Arsenal in a despicable state without any trophy. Many pundits and fans thought he would have left the club like two seasons ago, regardless, it is also a good time to leave after failing to improve the team.
The question of who succeeds the French tactician has continued to be a subject of huge debate but it is a matter of when the board decides to announce new manager because one must be appointed. Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has made a case for his assistant Rui Faria to manage the Gunners, according to report.
Mourinho has worked with Faria in all the clubs he’s managed and they know each other very well. Reports have linked Faria with the managerial job of Arsenal even though he is without experience as a manager and Mourinho has claimed that his most trusted ally is a will be a good fit for the Gunners.
According to NST, Jose said: “You ask me if I think it would be a good fit [for Arsenal job] and I say ‘yes’. And I say it because he is more than my assistant, he is my friend.
“If my friend has the possibility one day of a big job, I would help him to pack and to carry the bags and to wish him luck.
“So if one day that is going to happen, the first one to be happy would probably be myself because I met him when he was a kid in his university and we were together for 18 years.”
Following the poor display of the Gunners in the Europa League on Thursday night, it is apparent that Arsenal need to appoint a manager with experience that can spur the players onto greater achievement.
It is a shame that Wenger is leaving Arsenal in this terrible state where a brand new team may be bought.
