Bundesliga boss in line to replace Wenger at Arsenal?

There is a new name in the frame to be the man to finally replace the long serving Arsene Wenger as the manager of Arsenal Football Club, and unless you are one of the football fans who keeps an eye on events in the football world outside England and the Premier League, it may well be a name that you are not familiar.

Ralph Hasenhüttl is certainly becoming more well known all the time, as his current club Red Bull Leipzig is the talk of Germany after a great start to the current season which sees them sitting on top of the Bundesliga table ahead of the usual suspects of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

The manager only joined the club in the summer and this is their first ever season in the top division of German football, which is not surprising as they were only formed in 2009, so their story is pretty remarkable and their coach is gaining a lot of respect for his tactical nous and ability to get the best from his players, even though Leipzig themselves are not too well loved in Germany as there is a belief that all their success is based on their financial power.

Whatever the case with the club, Hasenhüttl has been doing a great job and with just four games to go until the winter break he has a chance of earning the title of winter champion with second placed Bayern Munich three points behind.

The Sun reports that this great and unbeaten start to the season has alerted the Arsenal board who are now keeping a close eye on the 49-year old Austrian as a potential replacement for Wenger, whose current contract is only set to run until the end of this season.

Do you think the Frenchman will carry on and who would you like to replace him when he does go?

    Are they happy with that lost against Southampton?

    ‘Title of winter champion…’ – yeah… there’s no such thing!!
    Too early to discuss him. Plenty of newly promoted sides go on a run early as the league hasn’t yet figured them out. Will definitely be tuning in to them playing Munich in a few games time. If they turn up against them with all this pressure it may be the start of something big.
    Forsberg, Keita and Werner are balling!!

    When the season started I thought we had depth of top quality but now I think we just have mainly depth in terms of quantity that are decent to average (exceptions Ospina, Xhaka, Giroud, Ox)

    I haven’t been impressed with Ramsey, Eleney, Jenkinson, Lucas so far
    I think Eleney and Lucas were panic buys that were not planned out
    I think I prefer Wilshere over Ramsey too

    We NEED Cazorla and Bellerin back and need Cech, Ospina, Monreal, Gibbs, Koscielny, Mustafi, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ozil, Walcott, Ox, Alexis, Giroud to stay HEALTHY

      Erghh.. Please for the love of god stop reciting buzzwords!! ‘Panic buys’ gets thrown around so ridiculously with us it’s amazing at times…
      We scouted Elneny for over a year!!!!!!

        If that’s the case then this planned buy is actually worse than a panic buy!!!$

          Oh no! 6mil on a squad player!!!! Wenger out!

          1. rkw says:

            doesnt matter what he cost … its simply indicative of a failed regime .. 5 mill for kante from a french club … stop trying to defend the indefensible

    Just poach Jurgen Klopp from Liverpool when we are ready, in the meantime, he should keep getting acquainted with the EPL. Does it sound arrogant? Oh yeah, that’s what Dominance is all about, we paid for it with 12 years of ridicule, didn’t we? Now we have a lot more resources than Liverpool, why not?

    1. Godswill says:

      You know when he quit Germany fan were clamouring for him but the board did not declare vacancy.
      Now it will be difficult to get him from Pool.

    Just pry Patrick Viera from NYCFC and make King Titi his assistant. He is working wonders at the MLS right now

    This season is turning out to be no different from the previous ones even with new players signed. I think that points out that may be our major problem could be Wenger himself. I am convinced no matter who he signs we shall always fail to beat teams like soton, “mourinho” stoke etc

  7. Big Gun says:

    We lose a cup game with a second string team and everyone is calling for Wenger’s head again. Wow. Nevermind the fact that we have only lost one league game this season (against a Liverpool team who scored miracle goals against us) Chelsea are top but we beat them three nil! Put away the pitchforks please and lets focus on the league and CL.
