Jamie Redknapp makes interesting claim about next Arsenal manager
The Spurs legend claims that Arsenal would be a very attractive prospect to manage for Europe's top coaches
Jamie Redknapp believes Arsenal would have no shortage in applicants if Arsene Wenger left the north London club.
The Gunners are in fifth place in the Premier League table and facing the real prospect of missing out in a top-four finish this season.
Indeed, Arsenal need to beat Everton and hope Liverpool fail to collect three points against Middlesbrough to secure a Champions League spot.
The north London outfit crashed out of the Champions League back in March after a humiliating 10-2 aggregate loss to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Arsenal haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04 when Wenger led the Gunners to an unbeaten season to secure his fourth top-flight trophy.
Wenger’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, although the 67-year-old Frenchman is expected to sign a contract extension in the summer.
Speaking to Sky Sports about the situation at Arsenal, Redknapp claimed that the Gunners would be an attractive proposition for Europe’s top managers.
“If you could take over any top club in Europe it would be Arsenal – because you know, if they sign some good players this summer, they’re only going to go one way and that’s up,” Redknapp said.
“A good manager would love that opportunity to take them forward.”
