Leicester City boss Claude Puel has warned that Arsene Wenger’s departure will be followed by difficulties, but he hopes Arsenal will reach a strong level again in time.
Southampton host our Arsenal side tomorrow in the FA Cup, as they look to become the first team in over 30 years to knock us out of both cup competitions.
The Saints are revelling in their defeat of Liverpool in midweek, which has earned them a place in only their second League Cup final of their history, but the manager has called for focus ahead of the coming encounter.
Claude Puel has tipped Eddie Howe to succeed Arsene Wenger in Arsenal’s top job in the future.
The current Southampton boss Puel worked under the French boss at Monaco when Wenger led them to the Ligue 1 title in 1988, and actually spent his entire playing career with the club.
