Ian Wright has claimed that Sean Dyche should be considered to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager.
The Gunners boss signed a new two year contract this summer, but has to surely be closing in on the end of his reign some time soon, and it will be tough to replace him.
Ian Wright has praised the performance of Dyche as Burnley manager, and insists that he should be in the running for the job, but unfortunately doesn’t foresee him being considered.
“I believe he is somebody that needs to go, at some stage, to the next level,” Wright said.
“Yeah. The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job?” Wright stated. “In respect to how his team sets up when they’re defending, he’s obviously got acumen — but will he get a job like that? I don’t think he will.”
All this talk has of course stemmed by his impressive organization of his side, which has seen them beat or draw with four of the big seven so far this term, including wins over Chelsea and Everton.
Burnley now sit only one point behind the Premier League champions and Arsenal after seven matches, and are looking like an outside bet to earn a spot in Europe for next term, although the Champions League would surely be too tough a task.
Dyche is being talked about for bigger jobs however, and he could well find himself on the shortlist for more established jobs in the division.
Would you include the Burnley boss for the running for Wenger’s job? Does he deserve a shot at the top jobs? Is this all getting a little out of hand?
