Arsenal intend to put Mikel Arteta through a rigorous interview process.
Arsenal is considering making Mikel Arteta their next manager after they fired Unai Emery but the road to the managerial seat won’t be an easy one, according to reports.
The Gunners considered making Arteta their manager before they hired Unai Emery who was also highly thought of at the time, the Spaniard is now back among the favourites to land the job.
The report claims that: “Raul Sanllehi and technical director Edu will interview candidates separately from Huss Fahmy, director of football operations, and managing director Vinai Vinkateshem.
“A final interview will be conducted in America with owner Stan Kroenke and his son Josh. “
Arteta is just one of several candidates that Arsenal have on their mind to be named as their next manager.
The likes of Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino are still very much in the running for the job, but Arteta would be a popular appointment because of his playing history at the Emirates.
Freddie Ljungberg is also in the running to get the job until the end of the season if he can succeed in turning their season around.
There does seem to be a bit of momentum building around Arteta. I am just not so sure that he would be widely welcomed as the clubs saviour. A more experienced manager is what the fans are wanting, certainly based on comments on this site.
