What are the next Arsenal manager odds? Who will take charge at the Emirates once Wenger steps down?
A lot of people have been confused by these questions over the past couple of months so we decided to see what exactly are the next Arsenal manager odds.
1. Carlo Ancelotti:
A lot of people have been putting their bets on Carlo Ancelotti to replace Arsene Wenger during the summer. The Italian has been without a job since Bayern Munich sacked him during the end of last year.
A few reports have claimed that Ancelotti has not taken up a new job because he is waiting to become the new manager of the Gunners after Arsene Wenger steps down with dignity.
2. Joachim Low:
Low is currently managing the German national team and he too ranks high in the next Arsenal manager odds list. But if the Gunners are to make a move for him then it will only be possible after the World Cup which is scheduled to be held in Russia this summer.
And we feel that if Wenger parts ways with Arsenal during the summer then the board will not want to wait too long to name the Frenchman’s successor.
3. Thierry Henry:
Another man who ranks very high in the next Arsenal manager odds list. The former Gunners striker is currently assisting Roberto Martinez in the Belgium National team and he has time and again expressed his desire to manage Arsenal.
And believe it or not a lot of Arsenal fans want Thierry Henry to replace Arsene Wenger simply because they feel that the former striker would understand their club’s plight.
4. Mikel Arteta:
Like Thierry Henry, Mikel Arteta is also an assistant manager and is currently assisting Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
A few reports have claimed that Arteta is also being considered for the managerial job but the fans though are not too happy with this news.
5. Thomas Tuchel:
The 44-year-old manager was sacked as the manager of Borussia Dortmund in May of last year and since then he has not taken up a new job. Tuchel has claimed that he will be taking a year off from management and will weigh in his option at the end of the current season.
Tuchel also ranks high in the next Arsenal manager odds list and a few bookmakers claim that the German will take charge of Arsenal once Wenger steps down.
Thomas Tuchel recently rejected an offer from Bayern Munich for the upcoming season claiming that he wishes to manage a club outside of Germany and this led many people to believe that the former BVB man will be the one who will take charge of the Gunners during the summer.
So clearly the next Arsenal manager odds are as complicated as the Gunners’ hopes of playing in the Champions League next season.
