Carlo Ancelotti wants Wenger’s job?
Carlo Ancelotti was sacked this Thursday after 3-0 defeat to PSG. It took the Bayern Munich board only 24 hours to decide that Ancelotti was no longer fit for Bayern Munich.
Why was he sacked? Find out below.
Ancelotti although won Bayern the League last season but we all know that last year’s title win was papered over the cracks:it was remarkably unspectacular in what is becoming a weak league judging by German clubs’ results in Europe.
And also he lost the DFB Cup Semi Final to Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund. At that time they were also deprived of Manuel Neuer.
Then Thursday night, his tactics to stop Cavani, Neymar and Mbappe had completely backfired. He fielded a team which some thought wasn’t good enough. And also he had benched some of his finest players i.e Robben, Ribery and Hummels.
His plans went to ruins as it took Neymar only 85 seconds to expose the defense. And Dani Alves to score the opening goal.
Ancelotti also lost the dressing room. 5 of his own players had turned against him. And there was no coming back from that.
Since his departure from Bayern Munich, he had been linked to a move to Milan. He won them the Champions League in 2003 and 2007. But reports also say he’s going to take the rest of the year off. And the only thing good enough to convince him to manage a club this season instead of resting is Wenger’s Job.
Yes folks! That’s right. Ancelotti wants Wenger’s job as Arsenal’s manager.
And that seems possible as Ancelotti does have Premier League experience. He won the League with Chelsea in his first season.
And it seems that a Ancelotti could be one of the coaches to replace Wenger. If not this season then maybe the next.
We can recall Wenger insisting that he will “never forget” the “disgraceful” criticism he faced last term.
Wenger said he “loves this club”. But it won’t be long before he leaves if the fans don’t stop criticizing him. Although he signed a 2 year contract extension this summer but he said he hesitated in doing so. Primarily due to the fans behavior.
We’ll be lucky to be managed by either two of these coaches. We hope whatever happens, happens for the best.
