5. There Are Probably Candidates Ahead of Him
While Rodgers has performed a mere miracle in turning Ronny Deila’s stuttering Hoops team into an all-conquering green and white machine, there are probably a few names higher up Arsenal’s list of potential candidates.
Carlo Ancelotti, Luis Enrique, Unai Emery and Antonio Conte are all either available or soon will be, if you believe the waves of speculation in the English media.
All of those managers have better credentials than Rodgers, both domestically and on the European stage.
Granted, it’s not unfeasible that all of the above would reject Arsenal’s advances, making Rodgers a more than capable back-up.
But surely that’s unlikely given the club’s transfer budget and global appeal?
