Arsenal Are Making Moves to Replace Arsene Wenger
A German football coach has confirmed Arsenal have made contact over the possibility of replacing Arsene Wenger at the Emirates. The Frenchman’s contract with the Gunners will run down at the end of the season and he has not signed an extension so far.
Earlier this week, The Sun reported the north London club have approached the Bundesliga manager as the Gunners have started their search for Wenger’s successor. The Austrian manager responded to reports linking him with a move to Arsenal by saying “it was a well-researched story.”
“There was a lot of truth to it. I have heard of worse fates than succeeding the longest-serving manager in England. It’s not damaging my reputation, is it?” Hasenhuttl was quoted as saying by ESPN.
“We don’t have to put too much thought into it. I have found my luck here,” he added.
The 49-year-old manager started his coaching career with SpVgg Unterhaching in 2007 and his rise has seen him land the job with the newly promoted Bundesliga side in July. Under his guidance, the Die Roten Bullen have 30 points from 12 games, level on points with leaders Bayern Munich who have played 13 games so far this season.
