- Match Analysis
Arsene Wenger announced that he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season. In his 22 years reign with the club, he has won 10 major trophies 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, Carlo Ancelloti and Massimiliano Allegri, and a number of former favorites like Mikel Arteta, Patrick Viera and Thiery Henry.
According to latest reports, Enrique has emerged as the favorite to replace the Frenchman at Arsenal next season. He is now ready to get back into management after taking a year gap when his contract with Barcelona expired last year. But he is demanding high wages to take the coaching job.
Luis Enrique’s sky-high wage demands could rule him out of the running to become Arsenal’s new manager, reports the Mirror . The former Barcelona boss is reportedly asking for a £25 million-a-year salary, more than tripling outgoing manager Arsene Wenger’s wages of £8 million-a-year.
Arsenal may not be willing be pay such huge wages and could move on to younger and cheaper options like Mikel Arteta, Patrick Vieira and Julian Nagelsmann.
