Manchester United legend and SkySports pundit Gary Neville took a dig at Arsenal’s management for failing to replace the outgoing manager Arsene Wenger yet. He also declared that the incompetence of the Arsenal board is to be blamed for bringing instability to the club.
Speaking on a show, Neville said,” I’m shocked at the process that has gone on since (the announcement). To be fair, we should all celebrate Arsene Wenger and say thank you very much, but Arsenal is making a right mess of what’s gone on since. They’re all over the place!”
The former fullback went on to elaborate that ever since the news of Luis Enrique refusing to take up the job after being denied a 250 million pounds war chest surfaced, the board did an extremely poor job in clarifying their stance. He elaborated,” If you look at Arsenal and you talk about Luis Enrique, they found out he wanted too much money. What, they found out after they approached him he wanted too much money?”
According to the latest reports, the Gooners are reportedly eager to offer the job to either of its two ex-players, Mikel Arteta and Patrick Viera. Apparently, Hoffeinheim boss Julian Nagelsmann is also in the reckoning, with the board preferring a young, dynamic manager to bring in the changes required to bring back the glory days at the club.
