Would Nuno Santo be the sort of manager to appease the Arsenal fans?
Nuno Espirito Santo is one of several names who have been linked with the managerial position at Arsenal and we look at how good or bad a manager he could be for the Gunners.
He has shown resilience bouncing back from being ousted as Porto manager to guide Wolves to promotion to the Premier League.
Santo has helped the likes of Raul Jimenez, Adama Traore and Ruben Neves mature into quality players. Arsenal could do with a manager like that.
Santo is also a manager for the big games as his Wolves side keep proving time and again.
Having managed FC Porto in the Champions League, Nuno also comes with European management experience. That is probably an essential requirement for any future Arsenal manager.
The 45-year-old sends his team out to play entertaining attractive football which, if we are honest, has been missing with Arsenal for some time now.
Santo is yet to win a major trophy as a manager and until he does that will be a burden.
Santo could be one of those managers who thrive at smaller teams then struggles at a higher level. This appears to have been the case with Porto where he was sacked.
The brutal truth is that are other managers around his age that have a far better record. Erik ten Hag is a classic example of that. Why would Arsenal choose a manager with an inferior record?
