First of all we need to assume that the people in charge behind the scenes at Arsenal FC are actually thinking about putting a new manager in charge, rather than the usual default setting of letting Arsene Wenger having yet another crack at the Premier League despite the Gunners slipping further and further away from mounting any sort of challenge in recent years.
Failure to win the Europa League and kill two birds with one stone by giving the fans sime silverware to celebrate and getting the team back into the elite Champions League tournament will certainly give the top brass at theclub some food for thought, but let’s assume that they are looking for a new manager.
One man with a very good track record and who also happens to be available is the former player and manager of FC Barcelona, Luis Enrique. Enrique led the Catalan club to nine trophies in his three seasons in charge, including the continental treble in his first campaign, breaking various records during his spell at the Nou Camp.
He stepped down a year ago but now sounds like he is ready to go again. As reported by Metro, Enrique is not going to take just any job, so any club wanting to get him needs to make it an exciting prospect.
The Spaniard said, ‘I do not know. It will depend on someone loving me but it has to be something that makes me very excited.’
I reckon that the chance to take over from Wenger and get Arsenal back to the glory days could be an exciting prospect, especially if the bioard promised to back him heavily in the transfer market. All managers fancy a crack at the EPL, but can Arsenal persuade this former Barca man to come to north London? Would you even want them to?
