Ivan Gazidis, Raul Sanllehi and Sven Mislintat cannot agree on who should succeed Arsene Wenger despite the manager leaving in one week’s time.
With the clock ticking down towards a World Cup summer, the men charged with finding a replacement for the most successful manager in the club’s history have not yet decided who should replace him according to ESPN. They want an experienced head coach.
The Kroenkes are said to be pushing for a younger coach, someone like Julian Nagelsmann or Mikel Arteta. Stan, apparently, wants to try and emulate the success he had with the LA Rams when he hired then 30-year-old Sean McVay to take charge of his team.
Josh Kroenke, meanwhile, is a known admirer of Thierry Henry whose name, thankfully, seems to have fallen away from discussions. He is charged with convincing the others at Arsenal that a younger coach is the way to go.
Arsene Wenger will take charge of his last home game on Sunday afternoon against Burnley. Both sides are still fighting it out for sixth place with Sean Dyche’s men just three points behind the Gunners.
