Five candidates that could replace Arsene Wenger (6)

Published Add your comment

Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp would be the first choice of many Arsenal fans, for he has a lot to admire.

The style of play for one, and not only that he has experience of working to similar financial restraints as Arsene Wenger has in recent seasons.

He also has very similar values focusing heavily on youth development. 

Klopp's record is nothing short of exceptional considering what he has achieved has been attained on a stringent budget and he has developed a reputation of having a great eye for a player.

When you consider he bought Robert Lewandowski for a bargain at just £2.5 Million from Lech Posnan, Mario Götze came through Borussia Dortmund's academy and Mats Hummels was also cheap from rivals Bayern Munich, who saw him as surplus to requirements at the Allianz Area.

Klopp's Dortmund operated as a free flowing attacking football side, although things were difficult at the start due to the club almost ceasing to exist because of mass debt.

Numerous players were let go and sold on to balance the books and the team suffered for a couple of seasons.

It was in 2010/2011 where Dortmund fans began to reap the rewards of this policy - it was the first League title which would be closely followed by another just a year later.

If I were to pick one manager who would carry on the philosophy at the club Jurgen Klopp would be that man.
