Emirates Stadium replacement lined up.
Arsene Wenger will find his own successor when he brings an end to his lengthy spell as Arsenal boss according to The Sun.
The 65 year old Frenchman, who has been in charge of the north London side since October 1996, is keen to avoid the ‘mess’ that was left following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement from his position as Man United manager and Arsenal have already begun to construct a short-list of potential replacements for Wenger.
Wenger is ready to run the rule over possible replacements in the coming months and may then look to have said boss ‘learn the ropes’ under him before he quits the Emirates Stadium.
Of all the names in the frame for the job perhaps the biggest surprise is Paul Clement, the highly rated Real Madrid coach who is tipped to be a top manager though is yet to serve as a boss in his own right.
42 year old Clement has previously worked at both Chelsea and PSG uder the guidance of Carlo Ancelotti and could be tempted by the chance to make a name for himself in his own right.
Indeed Clement is something of a wanted man and as such Arsenal would perhaps have to force their way ahead of prospective suitors by offering a managerial post in the near future though Wenger has of course only recently signed a new three year contract.
