next Arsenal manager odds
Arsene Wenger is now the longest-serving manager in Premier league, after Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Since his arrival in 1996, Arsenal competed regularly in the Champions league and also won several Premier league titles and FA Cups. Although Wenger improved Arsenal’s game and made them a top four English team, last trophy that went in the trophy cabinet is the 2005 FA Cup and Arsenal’s owners are slowly running out of patience. We are going to see, which managers have the upper role, if Gunners decide to replace Wenger any time soon.
After taking over the reins of Swanse City from Brendan Rodgers, Michael Laudrup improved the game of the Welsh team and earned them their first trophy, winning the League cup last season. This achievement saw them grant the European stage for the first time in their history and Laudrup received much praise for his results. His results placed Laudrup on top of the managerial wishes for several bigger clubs and it is probably the matter of time before he switches. His work can be associated with the one from Wenger, since he built a respectful team for a bargain, something that can easily be associated to Wenger. If Wenger doesn’t bring a trophy anytime soon, Laudrup could easily take over the London-based club.
Arsenal brought Wenger back in 1996 from the Japanese team Nagoya Grampus. Nagoya maintained a great relationship with Arsenal and played several friendly games versus the Gunners. Current manager of Nagoya is Dragan Stojkovic, one of the best players in Europe in the early 90’s and former Yugoslav national player. Although his resume is still not impressive, he could easily be considered as a manager after Wenger leaves. His charisma and commitment to football might be just what Arsenal need.
