Carlo Ancelotti holding out for Arsenal job so what should Arsene Wenger do?

Posted on October 02, 2017 by Milos Markovic

The Italian media report that Carlo Ancelotti is looking towards Arsenal following his most recent Bayern Munich dismissal.

Trophy-laden tactician was sacked by Bundesliga champions after a series of poor results at Bayern Munich with the tipping point coming at the 3-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League group stage last week.

Bayern Munich decided to part ways with Ancelotti despite the Italian leading the Bavarians to the Bundesliga title last year. A string of below-par performances and a reported disagreement with some of the players at the club led to his sacking.

Ancelotti will remain a free agent for the rest of the year and would break his sabbatical only if Arsenal come calling, Mediaset Premium reported.

The 58-year-old has been linked with a return to Italy straight after his Bayern Munich departure, with media claiming he could either take over from Vincenzo Montella at AC Milan or from Giampiero Ventura at the helm of the national team.

The Coach does not intend to return to Italy until 2020 the earliest, however, as he is holding out for Arsenal.

Ancelotti already worked in London where he led Chelsea to the Premier League title. The delights of the English capital are alluring the Italian tactician, together with a possibility to help Gunners rediscover their ruthless edge which became a bit blunt under Arsene Wenger lately.

    Ancelotti has had a poor run of events both at Real Madrid and Bayern whatever name. I am sure he is now not any different from Wenger the “Failure Specialist”. He has been failing too. We need a young and no nonsense Manager like Jose, Pep and Mouricio and Zinadin Zidani. We want such and look at the performance from these young ones, not the same old fashion football of passing the ball all over the pitch ending up with a 10:2 down scoreline.Traditional type, The young Cleverly said ‘there is a smell of blood when you are playing football with some teams not with Arsenal FC’. The wages of sin is death and Ozil is committing similar sins that will follow him like Nasri.May his end come quickly.

  3. Collins says:

    Ther only thing that will remove Arsene Wenger is real “disaster”. This is I believe the present board are on oath to wait for. Otherwise Wenger should be out by now.
    O Wenger, how thou have reduced reduced Arsenal to an averge club by trhe same hands that moulded it to greatness. Please move on…
