Arsenal is not for Carlo Ancelotti at this moment in time
After firing Unai Emery from their managerial position, it is understandable that Arsenal has been linked to every single manager that hasn’t a job at the moment.
The club’s decision to make Freddie Ljungberg their interim manager hasn’t turned out as well as they would want and fans have begun asking for a reputable manager.
Some of the managers on their list of targets have not enjoyed enough success in their career, but the likes of Max Allegri and Carlo Ancelotti have enjoyed lots of success.
The latter has just been fired by Napoli and several news outlets have already started reporting that he is close to being named the next Arsenal manager, but I don’t agree that he is the right man for the job.
Make no mistake, Ancelotti is one of the most successful managers we have seen in this generation. He remains with the third-highest winning percentage for a Premier League-winning manager after Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, I believe that firstly, the Arsenal dressing room is too divided for him. He has never really worked with a team so low on confidence and turn things around.
Secondly, he remains a divisive figure, being fired in his last two jobs shows just how much division he can cause in teams before he leaves them.
Additionally, Ancelotti traditionally manages teams that have either one of the best squads and they are underachieving (Napoli) or teams who have almost unlimited resources to bolster their playing staff.
Ancelotti is a great manager and I can’t take anything from him, but he is not the solution to Arsenal’s problems now.
