Arsene Wenger is still the man for the job at Arsenal
With the start of the Premier League around the corner, attention has turned to recent performances of certain managers. One such manager is Arsene Wenger, who has received backing recently as the man to lead Arsenal to another Premiership title...
With Arsenal failing to win the Premier League last season, some critics have said that perhaps Wenger has seen his glory days at the club disappear, with others saying he should move over to give somebody else a turn at the helm.
Not everybody shares this opinion though, as former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein offers his insights into the matter. He believes that the frenchman is still very much the man for the job at the Emirates.
"People have to remember what he's done and achieved.” commented the former Arsenal vice-chairman.
"It's easy in life to get rid of people but then what? Getting someone better is the trick."
Despite Wenger not bringing any silverware to the club since 2005, Dein has urged people to remember that replacing a figure such as Wenger would be a monumental task for the club.
"How do you follow Arsene Wenger?" said Dein, who left the Gunners back in 2007. "That is not going to be an easy exercise.”
"He has got a talented array of players and obviously he wants to improve and I know for a fact that he is looking to bring in two or three more players if he can."
Dein also went on to offer his opinion of those managers who promise to deliver trophies to a club at the start of a season.
"Any chairman or manager who comes out publicly and says they are going to win a trophy is deluding themselves," stated Dein.
Arsenal will play Newcastle on August 13th with Sky Bet, bet365 and Coral offer 7/2 odds of Newcastle winning the encounter.
