Who Should Replace Arsene Wenger and Why?

Let us take a look of which managers are the prime candidates to replace legendary Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal boss.

Who should replace Arsene Wenger and WhyFor over two decades Arsene Wenger has been the manager of the Premier League football club, Arsenal. In that time, the Frenchman’s name has been synonymous with the club and his every decision responsible for what the club is today. Whether this has been for the best is up to you to decide.

That is all coming to an end this season however, with the official announcement of his retirement.

“Next season another manager will be stepping up to take this much revered role and every football fan is speculating who that could be.” – Arsenal fans and betting experts from Bet365 BonuscodeGenertor.com

Here are some of the more likely candidates and why.

Carlo Ancelotti

Considered by many as one of the best coaches in the world, Carlo Ancelotti has achieved much with league titles in Milan, Chelsea, PSG and Bayern Munich, and three Champions League titles. In terms of experience and dependability, he is regarded as the best option for Arsenal.


  • A wealth of experience
  • Garnered success in a high number of leagues and cups
  • A rare availability at the moment

Massimiliano Allegri

The current Juventus manager has garnered many accolades in the Italian league and has been very successful in the champions league, although he has no cup. He is well-known tactician and a highly respected manager whose move to Arsenal could shake up the Premier League.


  • Has stated interest in a Premier League move
  • Would be welcomed by fans for his champions league record
  • Flexible tactics that should blend in well with the Arsenal squad

Diego Simeone

The current Atletico Madrid Coach has in recent years made the club a consistent La Liga title contender in recent years. Many would welcome him to Arsenal and be happy to see how he performs with a club with more resources.


  • An aggressive and clearly passionate coaching style
  • Has done wonders with a relatively weaker side
  • Has a promising Champions League track record

Sean Dyche

This manager has so far been the definition of making something out of nothing, and has guided Burnley to some of their best playing years since becoming their manager in 2012. Considering Arsenal’s slump in recent seasons, a manager like this could be just what is required.


  • Has had an impressive run with Burnley, performing only a little less in Premier League than Arsenal this season
  • Could achieve more with Arsenal resources
  • Familiarity with the competition in Premier League

Patrick Viera, Thierry Henry or Mikael Arteta

These three Gunners legends are all in consideration for the role of manager. None of the three have held a managerial position at a club quite as big as Arsenal, but this lack of experience is balanced by their familiarity with the Arsenal playing style and atmosphere.


  • History and experience which could be important in this transition
  • Familiarity with Arsenal playing style and Atmosphere
  • Beloved by the fans, while being fans themselves
