Even though Arsene Wenger is expected to see out the final year of his contract, that hasn’t stopped names being linked with the non-vacant Arsenal job and Favre is the latest to be added to what is a growing list.
Favre only took up the Nice job last summer having previously managed at Borussia Monchengladbach and Hertha Berlin.
His average in Ligue 1 is 1.55 points per game. To compare, Wenger’s return has been 1.96 points per game at Arsenal.
Just like Wenger, Favre is out of contract at the end of next season.
