Pundit questions Arsenal shortlist to replace Arsene Wenger

Pundit questions Arsenal shortlist to replace Arsene Wenger

Frenchman Wenger, who is leaving the club after nearly 22 years in charge, was given a guard of honour by both sets of players before the kickoff and then walked to the visiting Arsenal supporters to acknowledge them.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Frenchman Arsene Wenger stated clearly that his successor at Arsenal must bring in fresh legs to the Emirates stadium for the Gunners to be able to compete for the Premier League title.

Arteta would be an interesting appointment for Arsenal as he has no managerial experience, but after spending five years at Arsenal he knows the club well.

Huddersfield were fitting hosts for the occasion. We had disagreements which I accept but we had one thing in common: "we loved Arsenal football club and I wanted to share that with them today".

His lads certainly did him well on his last day in-charge, as the Gunners were able to secure their first away win of 2018 when they beat Huddersfield Town 1-0, courtesy of a goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

We made some applause.




There were 10 changes in the 20 clubs' hotseats during the campaign and with the end of Wenger's 22-year reign announced in mid-April before he saw out the season, the total stands at 11 - equalling 2015-16's Premier League record.

'It was important for us because it was the last game of the boss, ' he said.

He added that there was no sense of relief that his farewell period had come to a close.

Allegri, speaking after winning a fourth consecutive double on Sunday, said he would stay at the Serie A champions "as long as they don't sack me".

Arsenal fans are growing impatient and it would appear even the players want answers now that the 2017/18 Premier League season has concluded.

"Yes I had offers, yes, of course".
