Who will replace Arsene Wenger at the helm of Arsenal as he will leave as soon as the season ends?
Online sportsbook news sites in the UK are on fire after today’s announcement made by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. The legendary Arsenal manager has declared that he will in fact step down as Arsenal manager as soon as the season is finished. After so many years Arsenal fans will finally experience what life is like without the French man. But who will replace Arsene Wenger?
What has Wenger given to Arsenal?
First of all and most importantly, 22 years of experience, 22 years of expertise, 22 years of management. Twenty-two years of his life. Arsenal is Arsene Wenger’s biggest achievement and they can both be proud of each other. Wenger’s most memorable and most impressive season was obviously season 2003/2004.
Arsenal won the Premier League that year and what makes it even more impressive is that fact that they remained unbeaten in the championship throughout the whole season. 38 matches undefeated. They were truly the kings of England. Two years lates wasn’t much worse for Wenger and Arsenal either.
It’s true that they only finished 4th in the league, but it was almost the most successful year in the history of Arsenal. They made it to the Champions League final upon knocking out Real Madrid, Juventus and Villarreal respectively in the Round of 16 Quarter-Finals and Semi-finals. They were beaten by Ronaldinho’s Barcelona in the final so Arsenal still hasn’t won a single UCL trophy in history.
Why did Wenger have to leave Arsenal?
That’s a good question: why did he have to leave? And an even better question is, who will be the next Arsenal manager? It’s true that Wenger used to be a successful manager at Arsenal, but his time has gone long ago and he failed to keep pace with it. Arsenal fans have been longing for this to happen for quite a while: more and more anti-Wenger protests were held in London.
Now is finally time for a change, and the only question left unanswered is who will replace Arsena Wenger? Who will be Arsenal manager next season? Luckily for us, online sportsbook sites in the UK are already offering odds to bet on next Arsenal manager. Let’s take a look at the most likely candidates!
Who will replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal?

Bet on Wenger’s next club!
Now that we commented on the future of Arsenal without Wenger, maybe it’s time to think about the future of Arsene Wenger as well. The legendary French coach was expected to retire as a football manager from Arsenal, but he only announced to leave Arsenal. He didn’t mention his intentions to retire from football, or at least from managing.
Which gives sources to many new speculations. PSG is likely to let go of current manager Unai Emery, who failed to bring the team in the UCL quarter-finals for 2 consecutive years, even after spending hundreds of millions of Euros to build his squad. Who could be better to manage PSG than a legendary French manager?
Do you think Wenger will replace Emery at the helm of PSG? Will Arsene Wenger manage PSG next season? Online betting sites in the UK do seem a potential in this move: the odds for Wenger to be the next PSG manage after Emery are 8/1 at BetVictor Sportsbook. Will Wenger replace Emery, or will he pick some other club?
