Is Brendan Rodgers the right fit for Arsenal?
Despite Arsenal backing Unai Emery to turn things around, it seems only a matter of time before he is sacked. With that in mind, several managers have been linked with the Gunners. In this article, I look at Brendan Rodgers.
Brendan Rodgers is probably one of the most underrated British managers at the moment. The former Liverpool manager took the Reds to the brink of winning the Premier League in the 2013/2014 season.
He left Liverpool and managed Celtic for three years, winning consecutive league and Scottish Cup crowns.
Rodgers is a manager that brings about quick success, he has turned teams like Liverpool, Celtic and Leicester City around quickly and could turn Arsenal into top-four contenders almost immediately.
He also has a reputation for developing players having played key roles in the development of the likes of Raheem Sterling and Kieran Tierney. Arsenal young players would benefit greatly from his management.
Rodgers is also one of the best man-managers in the world. He could be the best person to calm the current storm at Arsenal.
Rodgers can be flaky, his Liverpool side bottled it when it really mattered.
Rodgers also hasn’t had the best of times when it comes to managing egos. He has done well with some big-name players. But he fell out with the likes of Moussa Dembele at Celtic and Daniel Agger at Liverpool.
The 46-year-old is probably a good fit for Arsenal but the Gunners may yet struggle to get him out Leicester City.
He has very little pedigree in Europe in terms of success.
