Bringing Arsene Wenger back to Arsenal indicates Mikel Arteta doesn’t have the nous to succeed on his own

Posted by

After the poorest of starts to their 2021/22 Premier League season, Arsenal have really begun to get things together under Mikel Arteta.

Although they were well beaten in the end at Anfield, they were more than a match for Liverpool in the opening exchanges of that game.

Just three points off of the top four, the Gunners have winnable games against Newcastle, Everton and Southampton over the next fortnight.

Given the turmoil at Old Trafford, the north Londoners may even consider their visit to Manchester United as another potentially easy three points.

In any event, the Daily Mail report that Arteta is looking at a way to bring Arsene Wenger back to the club, in some form of ‘mentoring’ capacity.

Apparently, discussions have already taken place and though any decision from the Frenchman hasn’t yet been forthcoming, heading back to the Emirates will hold obvious appeal for him.

That said, it does indicate that the Spaniard is looking for a comfort blanket of sorts. A buffer to bounce ideas off of, and the person to turn to when advice is needed.

Given that the position being opened for Wenger would appear to stop short of being a director of football role, one has to question whether Arteta does actually have what it takes to get the Gunners over the line.

Or is the potential appointment an admission of his own shortcomings…

  1. The wise man understands how little he knows. The fool thinks that he knows it all.
    Any manager who doesn’t think that a man of Wenger’s skills and experience can and will augment his knowledge and wisdom of the game is as foolish as the writer of this article.

    1. My thoughts exactly. I read the post and it confirms the foolishness of the writer. Normally I would’ve browsed past it without a care for such nonsense.

      1. What is the job of assistant coach, sporting director etc. It is to help the main coach make the right decision. So for me the writer is the foolish one.

  2. Yes it’s a wise man, a brave man that understands
    The wisdom of listening the others that have trod
    The same path you now walk in. Only a fool would
    Think otherwise. Aspecialy when that man is our
    Greatest ever manager who truly still loves Arsenal .
