Charlie Nicholas has claimed that Arsenal Football Club have no idea who they will hand the reigns to following the imminent departure of Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman is set to step down from his role as Gunners boss once the final two Premier League fixtures are completed come next weekend, and the club will have to appoint their first new manager in over 21 years.
Wenger has endured a number of tough campaigns in recent years, leading to sections of fans to call for his head, and they will soon get their wish, but that leaves plenty of scepticism about who will be coming in to try and rebuild the team.
One man strongly linked with the role is former Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac, and whilst he remains somewhat of an unknown, the links continue to flow.
Charlie Nicholas told Sky Sports that while he was totally aware of his qualities as a coach, he wouldn’t be against his appointment should he prove to have certain key traits.
“If he’s got those qualities, and I don’t know the man, then I’m all ears.
“Anybody that comes in has an opportunity for me to really move the club back forward again.
“I don’t think Arsenal have a clue who they’re going to give it to, I really don’t.”
Do Arsenal know the qualities they want from their next manager? Does Buvac’s lack of experience rule him out of the role completely?
