Arsene Wenger has revealed to Ian Wright that he is in the final days of his managerial role at Arsenal and this leaves the club with a huge task of getting the right person to replace him.
According to the Express,
ARSENAL will have to alter their management model once Arsene Wenger quits the club.
Those are the thoughts of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs.
Arsene Wenger has come under pressure in the past 10 days following back-to-back defeats against Watford and Chelsea respectively.
Fans have called for the Frenchman to step aside so as to allow someone to breathe fresh impetus into the club.
The era of the super manager when the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson dictated every aspect of United appears to be going out of fashion.
And Giggs is convinced that Arsenal will have to appoint someone who doesn’t mind not being able to micro manage every single detail of the club.
“You need that continuity at a club that can survive the departure of a manager, in the way that Southampton do, for instance,” Giggs wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph.
“At Tottenham Hotspur, Daniel Levy, the chairman, is the man in charge of making sure there is a recruitment strategy that means they do not have to tear it up when a new manager is appointed.
“It certainly has also been that way in the past at Swansea City with Huw Jenkins.
“That is the model that Arsenal will need when Wenger finally decides that he has had enough. There is no shame in that.
“I think all big clubs will have to accept that the job of coaching and preparing a successful team has to be separated from the massive workload and responsibility that comes with recruitment.
“I know Arsenal already have a structure in place to support Wenger, but in the future you could see a sporting director there having parity with the coach or manager.”
Arsenal take on Hull today in the lunchtime kick-off (12.30pm).
