Patrick Vieira To Replace Arsene Wenger At Arsenal?
Next Permanent Arsenal Manager
The search is on to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal Football Club.
The Frenchman has been in charge of the club since the 22nd of September 1996. He has been under pressure to call it a day for some time now and he will leave his position at the end of this season.
One of the first signings Wenger made as manager was that of Patrick Vieira. It proved to be a masterclass, as the player went on to be one of the greatest midfielders the Premier League has ever witnessed.
His countryman has now gone into management in the MLS and can be backed at 4/1 to take over at the Emirates alongside current Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers also at 4/1.
Another of Wenger’s master strokes was when he signed another young French player by the name of Thierry Henry. Henry went on to be one of the most prolific strikers in the league and credits Wenger with his transformation from a winger to becoming the focal point in attack.
He is currently an assistant manager with the Belgian national side but has stated he would love the chance to take over at Arsenal and can be backed at the moment at 18/1.
Some of the cream of international managers have been linked with the post in the past. A name that will not go away and who will come face to face with Wenger when his Atletico Madrid side face Arsenal in the Europa League semi-finals is Diego Simeone.
The Argentinian coach is known for his tough style of play; something that Arsenal have been sorely missing in recent years, and should he decide to swap Madrid for London, his current odds of 16/1 will look very tempting indeed.
