Everton boss David Moyes set to become Arsene Wenger’s successor
Manchester United and Arsenal are set on course for battle once again. Reportedly, the Arsenal board has set their eyes upon Everton manager David Moyes as the successor to Arsene Wenger, although the Scotsman has been in the mix of spearheading Manchester United in post-Alex Ferguson era.
David Moyes is also a wanted man at Chelsea. Rife rumors suggest Arsene Wenger is planning on installing David Moyes as the new boss of Stamford Bridge during the summer.
Arsene Wenger has been under a lot of scrutiny because of his new misfiring squad. The Frenchman forgot about the Arsenal traditions to bring in top notch players to the club during the summer transfer window. So far his signings have been unable to produce consistent form.
Moreover, Arsenal’s silverware drought will enter its eighth-season next year. The pressure of winning a trophy just keeps piling on the Frenchman. With Arsenal’s home defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup on Sunday, Arsene Wenger was turned into an object of criticism by his own fans from the stands.
This season will once again end trophy-less for Arsenal. The Arsenal board wants to change that as soon as possible. Arsene Wenger is bringing profits to the Arsenal board, but the need for silverware has finally overcome the desire for money.
The time has come to finally change Arsenal’s monotonous season-by-season game, which is why David Moyes, who knows how to manage an under-budgeted club, is the hot-favorite to become the new boss of Emirates.
Arsenal might lose their spot in the Champions League this season, which is another reason fans are screaming for change. The longest serving Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has been the greatest of all men that came to helm of the London club, yet the Frenchman has achieved very little in the past seven seasons.
If Arsenal are unable to qualify for the Champions League this season, this year could be Arsene Wenger’s last season as the boss of Emirates. The 49-year-old Scotsman from Goodison Park will be asked to step in his boots for the challenge of silverware.
