- Match Analysis
Arsene Wenger announced last Friday that he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season after 22 years. He won 10 major trophies with the club including seven FA Cups and three Premier League titles.
The Gunners now face the mammoth task of replacing Wenger and are already looking at potential candidates. A list of potential candidates includes proven winners, such as Luis Enrique and Massimiliano Allegri, and a number of former favorites like Mikel Arteta, Patrick Viera and Thiery Henry.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes Arteta has the potential to become a top coach. The Spaniard spent five years in North London before hanging up his boots and is currently under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City but is expected to leave soon to carry out on his own.
The Welshman told reporters ahead of a Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid: “Mikel was a fantastic player for Arsenal and a great captain.
“He’s been under Pep Guardiola there, he was always interested even when he was playing here in going into a coaching role one day, I’m sure he’s learning a lot about the game and especially the way Man City have been playing.
“They’ve done fantastically well, so I’m sure that one day when the time is right, he’ll be a fantastic manager. It’s still early days in his career at the moment.”
