Charlie Nicholas Touts Brendan Rodgers to Replace Arsene Wenger

Charlie Nicholas Touts Brendan Rodgers to Replace Arsene Wenger

Charlie Nicholas has touted Brendan Rodgers to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The Gunners this morning shocked football by announcing that the legendary French manager will leave his role at the end of this season.

He’s been in the job since 1996, leading Arsenal to 10 major trophies as well as a Champions League Final spot in 2006.

But the last few years haven’t been as good for the north London club, last term failing to finish in the top four and missing out on football in Europe’s premier competition.

And the pressure continued to mount this season as they struggle in the Premier League.

Now Wenger has confirmed he’ll leave at the end of the season, attention will turn to who comes next – and former Celtic and Arsenal striker Nicholas believes Rodgers should be among the possible candidates for the job.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, Nicholas said: “There have been a few in the past that are always linked, but some of them have actually went into a downturn in their career – one was Ronald Koeman, until he went to Everton and that didn’t quite work for him.

“Sorry, Celtic fans, I have to say this, but the style of Brendan Rodgers in Scotland has been breathtakingly good. He probably should have won the league with Liverpool so he has the credentials for me.”

You can’t disagree with Nicholas considering Rodgers is on the brink of another domestic treble with the Hoops, following up an unbeaten debut season domestically for the Northern Irishman.

He already had a good reputation from his time in England and the spell in Scotland should only add to that.

But would he interest Arsenal? And would he be prepared to leave Celtic?
