Who would you prefer as the next Arsenal manager? by Don Nayr
Credit to Arsene Wenger for finally making the announcement that he is going to step down as the Arsenal manager at the end of the season. He will surely go down as the greatest manager in Arsenal’s history. All Gooners ought to unite now and support the team to give Wenger a good sendoff, preferably with a Europa League medal. The Arsenal players also have an obligation to work their socks off in the remaining games, they owe that to the manager who has stood by them countless times.
But after the announcement, what’s next for Arsenal Football Club. Who is the man best suited to take Arsenal forward?

A brief analysis of the top 5 candidates
Positives- An Arsenal legend who was part of the famous Invincibles squad, will introduce a winning mentality still young for a manager at just 41 years old.
Negatives- inexperienced at the top level,he has only managed New York City FC.
Positives- Widely experienced, has won major trophies across different countries, tactically has been said to be adaptable.
Negatives- most people consider him as a short term option and his age would be a factor as he is 58 years old.
Positives- Young at 44 years, tactically very adept, plays expansive attacking football, has had major stints at good clubs like Mainz and Bvb.
Negatives- a major concern with how he deals with those in authority, has clashed with arsenal’s cheif scout Sven Mislintat.
4. BRENDAN RODGERS
Positives- young at 45 years, experienced and almost won the league with Liverpool, has gone unbeaten at Celtic, English
Negatives- has been said to be too arrogant for his own good, disliked by most gooners.
Positives- the Venezuelan born Portueguese is still young at 43 years, plays attacking football and won the league with Monaco last season.
Negative- at the beginning of his AS Monaco tenure there were concerns about his brand of football but he proved everyone wrong in the subsequent season.
I would like an arsenal team solid at the back with a strong backbone and good attacking prowress so my pick would be LEONARDO JARDIM.
