“The Arsenal bench could also become free” Sarri mentioned as a possible Arteta’ replacement

Maurizio Sarri is open to becoming the next Arsenal manager as Mikel Arteta continues to manage the Gunners under pressure.

The Gunners have had an underwhelming season with the Spaniard at the helm.

After winning the FA Cup last season, the club backed him with the signing of the likes of Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes, among others.

They were positive that this campaign will end well with the former midfielder leading them back into the Champions League places.

However, this has been far from the ideal season they would have wanted and they might not play in Europe next season unless things change.

Arteta’s job appears to be safe for now, but things can change in a second in football and the Spaniard would be smart to be prepared to get the sack if things don’t get better.

One manager who might be eyeing his job is Sarri, according to the Italian journalist, Carlo Laudisa, who claimed that Sarri wants a return to England.

During an appearance on Radio Punto Nuovo, Laudisa said via Sun Sports: “Sarri could go to England.

“The Tottenham solution being the most plausible, but the Arsenal bench could also become free, as [Mikel] Arteta has missed all the Gunners’ season goals.”

    No thank you very much, not on my favoured list, not even on the reserve list.

      I second this. May as well stick with farteta

      Every fans have their fav list of players and managers

      so must the club selection of manager, players, wages, transfer fees and etc…be subject to fans approval?

      so should the fans just take charge at running and managing the club??

  2. Marty says:

    Sarri…no thanks. I suppose after being linked with every player we are now going to be linked with every manager now.

    Arteta out sarri in

    If arteta get the sack at the end of the season the decision of his replacement is crucial as it will the next 5-10 years for arsenal. Another manager failure will set us back considerately and given how low we currently are the only way down is relegation battle.

    1. Ackshay says:

      Also NO to Sarri. unless he comes with a baseball bat and starts smashing unperforming or lazy player he will take on that rotten dressing room and lose just like his predecessors.

  5. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    I do not understand why some fans do not like him.
    They want a cool looking manager, not a winner!

    Sarri isn’t a bad option but he seems to be off the mark like Mourinho, alegri isn’t good for such a squad, we need a coach that can transform players to perform better ten hag of Ajax, Nuno, Brendan and the Bayern coach.. my choice for now is Brendan to stabilize the team first though he’s not a winner ……

      No wonder Kroenke hasn’t sacked Arteta yet, Sekitya. It won’t be an easy task to get the right man

  7. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    too much of a mercenary-type hire, just look at his CV…he has a tendency to wear out his welcome within 2 years or less, which simply can’t be the narrative on the heels of having two managers fired within a 3 year period, should the club sack Arteta…I like components of his offensive philosophy but he’s incredibly stubborn and if our current personnel doesn’t fit his MO off the hopper and he doesn’t get a sizeable transfer budget, he will shoehorn players in like the best of them…after Wenger, Emery and now Arteta doing likewise, we can’t afford to travel down that same road again…as such, our next manager must make sense from a personnel standpoint, which means the best options would likely be ten Hag, Gasperini and Bielsa

    Sarri, could be a Ranieri type wild card capable of overachieving with a limited group of players. He almost did it with Napoli a few seasons back where he bonded a team of odds and sods to a very close second. My misgivings about him is that the football will not always be pretty and the fact that he is not the type of manager to set long term goals. He seems to be a bit of a mercenary who likes to hit and run. On the other hand as a Mr Fixit he could be ideal.
