Video: Per Mertesacker Tells Denver Nuggets He Will Be Arsenal Manager One Day During Emirates Tour

Per Mertesacker apparently fancies himself as a future Arsenal manager.

The German defender revealed his hopes of one day succeeding current boss Arsene Wenger this week as he gave NBA stars the Denver Nuggets a tour of the Emirates Stadium.

Next Gunners boss?

The 32-year-old stopper – who has been at the North London club for six years – was showing the basketball players around the ground during their trip to London – and even got them to pull on their own red and white jerseys.

During the tour, along with team-mates Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding, Mertesacker made a point of singling out his picture one the wall of the tunnel beside manager Wenger.

And he joked that he was positioned next to the gaffer because he would one day go on to become Gunners boss in the future.

You can check it out in the video below:

Back in action

Mertesacker and Co return to Premier League action this Saturday when they travel to Swansea.

Wenger’s side go into the match off the back of a 2-1 win over Preston in the FA Cup third round.

A win could see them temporarily jump up to third in the table if Tottenham fail to win, while Manchester City aren’t in action until Sunday’s trip to Goodison to face Everton.
