At the same time as most Arsenal fans have a different theory about the current manager and whether Arsene Wenger should stay on or for how long, we also have different ideas about who should be the man to replace the Frenchman when his long shift at the helm of the good ship Arsenal finally does come to an end.
One of the favourite candidates in recent years has been the former Argentina international midfield star Diego Simeone, and even though his Atletico Madrid side are not doing quite as well in Spain´s La Liga this season, he will still be a the top of a lot of Gooners’ managerial wish list after beating Barcelona and the Real Madrid to the title and reaching two Champions League finals as well as winning the Europa league, Copa Del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and the Spanish Super Cup since taking the job in 2011.
According to a report in The Mirror, however, those wish lists may have to be changed after Simeone’s son Gio declared that not only is his father happy where he is for the moment, but that it is likely to be Inter Milan that he manages next.
Gio said, “Sooner or later will arrive the moment when Dad goes to Inter and I hope that this happens.
“Now he’s happy with Atletico and I see him as content, but if in the future he receives a call from Inter, why not? I would like this.”
Simeone is said to have very close ties with his fomer Serie A club and old friends of his that are still working there, but does this mean that Arsenal should forget about the Argentinean as a possible replacement for the prof?
