Wenger to choose his successor?

WTTGT Writer: Vivek Arulnathan

There are reports coming out that long-serving manager, Arsene Wenger will nominate his successor at Arsenal. With the Frenchman coming under a lot of pressure, there are speculations regarding his future with many feeling that he would be a fantastic choice to succeed Fabio Capello as the Three Lions’ manager.

Apart from being linked to England, there are also rumours that Wenger had an unofficial meeting with PSG officials while another interesting rumour is suggesting that Manchester City officials are keen on appointing Wenger to guide the club forward.

The Mirror have revealed that Arsene Wenger would not quit till his contract ends in 2014 having never broken a contract, and that the FA would have to make a official approach to Arsenal if they intend Wenger to take over England.

Having created a legacy at Arsenal that is unmatched in the club’s 125 year history, it is believed that the management will leave it to Wenger to nominate his successor.

The Mirror have also speculated that Pep Guardiola would be the hot favourite to be Wenger’s successor with the likes of Laurent Blanc, Mark Hughes and Dennis Bergkamp also in the running.

As of now, the board are highly unlikely to sack Wenger and when he decides to go, there is no doubt that he will have a huge say on his potential successor.

    its speculation built upon speculation!!!!.
    Wenger wont go and the board will never sack him….so i do not see the speculation taking any firm direction.
    Wenger for England is a hope for many arsenal fans that believe wenger to be past his best and a man unable to alter his football philosophy even when the requirements and the personnel of the team do not match the outline tactics.
    I believe the problems at arsenal are so significant that a change from kroenke to usamanov would inject much needed finance and an ambitious spirit in the club that at the moment is sliding backwards in every aspect. Wenger is a big part of that decay and it would be a good start if he resigned.A new manager would certainly be ruthless enough to offload players that for years have demonstrated they are not good enough for arsenal but for some strange reason are kept on.
