Wenger Wants New Coach to Continue His Legacy
Outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has warned his successor on the need to respect the club’s values and tradition while judiciously carrying out his duties.
The Gunners veteran coach said this ahead of his final game in charge for the North London club after he had earlier announced his retirement from the club in April after twenty-two (22) solid uninterrupted years
Arsenal’s board are yet to announce a replacement for the Frenchman, but Wenger was elated giving his successor some piece of useful advice ahead of his first day on the job.
“The advice I would give to him is to give his best and respect the values of the club,” said the Arsenal boss. “I would just like him to bring his ideas, a different way to see the game. That is a chance for the players to see something different.”
Arsenal will travel to Huddersfield for Wenger’s final game in charge – in a game of less significance, as the gunners are guaranteed a 6th place lose or win, and the Terriers securing promotion against Chelsea on Wednesday night.
Wenger added: “The last result will not matter. We have gone through a season that has ups and downs but they have created something special and I would like that to come out.”
Arsenal has penned a five-man list to replace Wenger at the end of the season. Three established managers feature on this list, as well as two club legends in Patrick Vieira and Mikel Arteta.
