Replacing Wenger an impossible job, says Arsenal chief

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom |  AFP | Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis believes he is now faced with an impossible task in finding a fitting replacement for outgoing manager Arsene Wenger.Wenger, 68, announced he will step down from his role at the end of the season on Friday after 22 years in charge.Despite winning three Premier League titles and a record seven FA Cups, mounting pressure was put on Wenger to leave by the club’s disgruntled fans as he failed to match the standards he set early in his reign over the past decade.The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League for 14 years and will miss out on Champions League qualification for the second successive season unless they win the Europa League, where they face Spanish giants Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.“We are not going to find a replacement for Arsene Wenger for a variety of reasons,” said Gazidis as he addressed a press conference at the club’s Emirates stadium on Friday.“The football club is in a very different place than it was 22 years ago and it’s unthinkable to me we will have another manager in the Premier League, let alone Arsenal, who will be 22 years in tenure and have the kind of run of consistent success Arsene had over those years.”In spite of Arsenal’s struggles on the field in recent seasons, they remain the sixth richest club in the world, according to financial consultants Deloitte’s annual Football Money League.And Gazidis claimed Wenger leaves the club in far better shape than when he arrived as a shock appointment from Japanese side Grampus Eight in 1996.“Arsene often said he wanted to leave the club in a better position than when he found it,” added Gazidis. “We are in a better place today than we could ever have imagined 22 years ago. The foundations of this club have never been stronger and this gives me great confidence as we begin to chart the path ahead.”However, Gazidis repeatedly avoided questioning on whether he wanted Wenger to see out the final year of a two-year contract extension he signed last summer.The Wall Street Journal reported that Wenger had chosen to leave on his own terms rather than face being pushed out at the end of the season.Gazidis, though, claimed the wheels hadn’t been put in motion to appoint a successor until Wenger made his decision public.Former Arsenal captain Patrick Vieira, Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers and Germany coach Joachim Loew are among the front runners with the bookies in a wide-open field of contenders.“We haven’t had any discussions to date regarding that process,” added Gazidis.“The most important thing is to make the right appointment not a quick appointment.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Powered by Firework Notice the Bundesliga logo. A player jumping high with one leg stretched ahead to reach the ball. To perform such a stalwart move requires monumental physical fitness. However, at the age of 31, its a piece of cake for Robert Lewandowski.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Bundesliga/Hupu SportsAfter opening up the scoreline in the 17th minute in yesterday’s Der Klassiker, Lewandowski performed an astounding acrobatic manoeuvre to keep the ball from going out of play, and it is strikingly similar to the Bundesliga monogram.The stunt has taken all the attention all around social media, with praises from supporters and media outlets.Advertisement The Bayern forward has been in tremendous form this season. Successfully finding the net in every single fixture of FC Hollywood in this season with 16 goals in 11 domestic league matches and 6 in Champions League, the Polish international has a total tally of 22 goals as of now in the 2019-20 spell.Bayern, who are currently managed under interim head coach Hans-Dieter Flick following the sack of Niko Kovac last week, converted their single goal lead into 2-0 thanks to Serge Gnabry in the 47th minute. Following Lewandowski’s second strike in the 76th minute, Dortmund’s final concession came in the form of an own goal from Hats Hummels, just 10 minutes prior to the final whistle.Advertisement With 21 points on part with RB Leipzig, Bayern are now 3rd in the league table, trailing 4 points behind leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach.
