I know! I know! Arsene can walk on water….at the moment. One fine run of Premiership wins, allied to a new defensive awareness and an almost fully fit squad has propelled the club to the heady heights of second place in the League and an FA Cup semi-final against Reading.
What’s more Le Professeur has two years left on his current deal and has never reneged on a contract. Meanwhile, the board are no more likely to sack him than voluntarily enter into a ground-share scheme with Totnumb.
Could the current purple patch prove to be Arsene’s Indian summer?
With an outstanding candidate about to become available would it not make sense to at least consider the option provided by the resignation from Borussia Dortmund of Jurgen Klopp?
Described in yesterday’s Daily Telegraph as “one of the World’s most wanted managers” the somewhat eccentric Herr Klopp is open to offers and has previously expressed his desire to manage in the English Premiership.
No doubt various other clubs both inside the EPL and abroad will be salivating at the thought of signing up a manager of his class, chief among them must be Manchester City and perhaps Real Madrid. Would Arsenal be an attractive destination for him? I think yes!
Klopp once set of an alarm clock in the dressing room immediately before a game, the message being “it’s time to wake up” Perhaps it’s time to set of an alarm clock in the Arsenal boardroom.
