Why Jurgen Klopp would be perfect for Arsenal by RP.
Wenger has helped to install an exemplary youth development institution at Arsenal and although a large selection of the current ‘homegrown’ players may have been bought in, let’s be honest with each other, they was kids when bought. Arsenal are known for buying ‘kids’ and as such have some very exciting prospects developing in the likes of Dan Crawley and Gedion Zelalem, the future is not in question when you look at Arsenal.
Wenger has done good work with the youth and I will come back to this point a bit later on.
I believe the main question that is asked overall is “What was Wenger thinking?” and a valid question which he never answers, what was he thinking when doing the team sheets? What was he thinking not making a sub until it was too late to expect the subs to really turn things around, what was he thinking loaning out Jenkinson if he won’t trust in Bellerin? Shall I go on? How about if you readers post in and tell me some?
Outside of games though and anyone would be hard pressed to have a real complaint about Wenger, his passion for the game isn’t in question and his ability to manage a business isn’t in question either… just look at our profits. The stability of the club isn’t in question either, as just said about profits and previously mentioned about kids, the only area of complaint appears to come from Wengers tactical decisions on match day.
If that is the only area that Arsenal fans have to complain about then they should consider themselves lucky, they have a bright future and they have a great man leading them, that great man though now needs to ‘step up’.
When he 1st came to the club he had Dein to support him a lot and since his departure the responsibilities appears to have been picked up by Wenger, this has come at a cost to his coaching capability which has finally lead us to where we are now, having a worse start since prior his joining…
If Wenger was to be moved onto the board to help continue shape the development of the club as a whole then we would still get his wisdom in helping us unearth future great players, to develop players like he has done so well at doing, his staying would help in the transition.
Jurgen Klopp has shown willingness to let young players show what they got which is evident in how Bayern and other top European clubs have been eyeing up their players.
The youth players at Arsenal would give him ample depth in the team while continuing the promote from within and self development.
Klopp and Wenger appear to have a mutual respect for each other and if I am being honest, I think a little to respectful of each other as I can’t hate his team for beating us, they played very good football and it was entertaining to watch.
That’s another thing which would suit Klopp as Arsenals brand incorporates an attractive style of play.
The current team are within a couple years of being in its prime I would say, Wilshere and Ramsey are so very close but need to gain consistency while Gibbs needs to keep fit, Alexis is getting use to the country and Welbeck still needs to find his consistent scoring boots.
Chambers looks like he will grow into a fine player as well. This is where the team now needs hard work, they need to be able to keep their flair but temper it, gets the basics solid.
Klopp is good at getting players to do the basics well, his players are generally very good passers and they cover a lot of ground when playing which just shows the stamina, they get the tackles in and his team acts as a team.
Those are some qualities which Arsenal have been losing the past few years and I think every Arsenal fan deserves more from Wenger, Wenger has shown us that we can and should aim for better and he now needs to lead us, not as a Football Manager but more as a Director of Football.
Give up the hot seat for Klopp, get on the phone to him as soon as possible and you never know, he may just be able to talk a few of his players to join to help complete us.
