Arsenal should keep Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger by hosanna9
Arsene Wenger has easily been the most successful manager in Arsenal history, winning 3 league titles, winning 5 FA Cups, and finishing in the top 4 of the league every season since taking over in October 1996. But, the "Gunners" haven't won a league title since 2004 and currently in 5th place and fighting to secure a Top-4 place, allowing them entrance to the Champions League next year. Some of the fans have called for Wenger to be "sacked" (British word for fired). The most famous is Daily Mail journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan. He says that Arsenal should bring in Jurgen Klopp, manager of German club Borussia Dortmund.
Piers Morgan on BBC Radio 5 Live's "606 Football Phone-in":

Jurgen Klopp -- Tim Reckmann
Klopp's team is in 14th place out of 18 teams in the German Bundesliga after being last much of the season. Dortmund finished as runner-up out of all European teams 2 years ago, but like Wenger, Jurgen Klopp has fallen upon recent struggles, except Klopp is managing a last place team. Arsene Wenger has over 20 years of experience and a championship pedigree, plus his name sounds just like Arsenal! That's why I think they should ride out the storm and let him retire when he feels like it.


  1. I am a huge Arsenal fan and I completely agree with you, that Arsene Wenger should not be "sacked", even though a lot of Arsenal fans think he should. I remember watching Arsenal live, when they beat Hull City to win the FA cup last year, it was a very good game. I became an Arsenal fan, when Arsenal completed a record signing, getting Mesut Ozil in 2013. Mesut Ozil is by far my favorite player, I think he has such a unique game, and I am glad he has been in great form recently. Who is your favorite player? What is your favorite team? PS, I have also thought it was funny that Arsene Wenger’s name sounds like Arsenal

  2. I agree that Wenger should be kept as well. He is a great coach and probably the best they've ever had. Firing him would be quite a bad decision. He has all the players they need, he's just got to get them a little more into it. Santi Cazorla, Alexis Sanchez, and Mesut Ozil are very talented players. All of had lots of experience playing against each other in La Liga. But Wenger has established a unique way of bringing them all together and getting the chemistry they need. What do you think some of Wengers best traits are?

  3. i love that his name is so similar - hah!
