Eddie Howe not good enough for Arsenal says Ray Parlour

The former Arsenal and England international midfielder Ray Parlour has stated that Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is not ready for the Emirates hot seat if Arsene Wenger departs, according to The Sun.

Parlour believes that it is far too early for Howe to be considered for the Arsenal job Wenger decides to leave next summer.

The 37-year-old manager has guided Bournemouth to the Premier League and managed to keep the Cherries in the top flight last season.

“He has certainly done a great job, but I just think it maybe a little bit too big for him at this time in his career,” Parlour told Goals on Sunday (via the Sun).

“I think he has to go to the next level after Bournemouth, maybe like an Everton, or someone like that who is going to be challenging for the top six.

“And then maybe move to the top four level, but Eddie has done nothing wrong and he is learning the game still and about players and systems and the way to play.”

Parlour played worked under Wenger for eight years at and won three Premier League titles during his time at the north London based club.

Bournemouth picked up their first win of the season against West Brom on Saturday. Meanwhile, Arsenal recorded their second win in a row and travel to France next week to take on PSG in the UEFA Champions League.
