Wenger confirmed on Friday that he would be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season after more than two decades at the helm of the Premier League club. BeIN Sports' Richard Keys reported that Wengerhimself recommended the former Arsenal star to replace him.
Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has reiterated his commitment to the club amid speculation regarding the soon-to-be vacant Arsenal manager's job.
Something had to give.
"He's a guy who has the potential one day, yes", he told reporters on Thursday. We have not finished the stadium and facilities.
Wenger's abdication was a shock but not surprising.
"Undoubtedly he is one of the greatest European coaches of all time".
The move was seen as an unforgivable act of betrayal which saw Cole end his seven-year association with Arsenal to join Chelsea, as many started to feel the power shift within London.
'We are not going to find a replacement for Arsene Wenger - we have to find a new path forward.
Since then the Frenchman has signed footballers from 26 different countries and in their Premier League fixture with Newcastle last Sunday the starting XI included only three Britons. In every moment, he tried to play good football, creative and offensive football. In this season's Premier League, Arsenal have lost touch with their peers in English football's top six. Football finance expert Kieran Maguire sees Wenger's later years as a litany of missed opportunities. A trained economist, he saw little value in the majority of deals struck for players, transactions that were in his opinion unduly inflated by the involvement of agents, pumped up by broadcast revenue and the largesse of dilettante owners.
The current Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, added: "Arsene is one of the managers who has had great influence in football". He has formed me as a man and as a player'.
"Of course, he already is", the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich coach replied when asked whether Vieira can become a "top manager". "Klopp is a fantastic ambassador".
"They were obviously very intent to not let there be a party for us, as you would expect".
"I have always respected my contracts", Wenger said.
He absolutely loves it, he loves Arsenal.
