Serving as the longest and most experienced manager in the Premier League, Arsene Wenger retirement as the coach of Arsenal will definitely leave a deep in that position. The impact of Wenger for Arsenal in the past 19-years will remain indelible for the Gunners.
As a pro-active club, Arsenal have started to prepare for life after Arsene Wenger and they have identified Bournemouth Manager Eddie Howe as the ideal and future replacement for the French tactician, this is according to Daily Star.
The calls for Wenger’s resignation grew last season when he lost the Premier League title to Leicester City that have less resources and experience. There was an open protest at the Emirates as his head was called for.
Nonetheless, Wenger is now in the final year of his contract with the London club and it is believed that he might call it quit at the end of the upcoming season. The report claims Howe is at the helms of the coaches shortlisted to take over the batten from Wenger.
Arsenal Legend Thiery Henry was believed to be preparing to take over the managerial position in Wenger’s absence but his recent departure from the academy set up means he is not an option any more.
Howe is highly rated but Wenger’s successor will most likely be picked by him.
Wenger currently earns £8.3million per Annum at Arsenal.
