Piers Morgan has been a member of the ‘Arsene Wenger out’ club for some time but, as expected, the opinions of the television presenter tend to fluctuate with Arsenal’s form. Morgan is very much anti-Wenger at the moment, and believes the club and the manager ought to part ways this summer.
Wenger is out of contract at the end of the season and, although he is widely expected to fulfil the wishes of the Arsenal board and sign for two more years, any delay in penning a new deal fuels uncertainty about his future.
Morgan would be rather peeved indeed if Wenger did further his stay at the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal in real danger of missing out on the top four this season for the first time in the Frenchman’s esteemed reign with the club.
But, as is always asked, who would be able to succeed Wenger as the manager of Arsenal? Well, luckily for the Arsenal board if they decided to go in that direction, Morgan has narrowed the list down to, erm, just the eight candidates.
Morgan tweeted: “‘Who can replace Wenger?' - try Mourinho, Guardiola, Klopp, Martinez, Ancelotti, Simeone, Rodgers, Pellegrini.. list grows every day.”
This Twitter feed of the disgraced former Daily Mirror editor is awash with his views on Arsenal, although his opinions are as much derided as they are praised. Earlier this season Morgan claimed to have never heard of Serge Gnabry when the youngster was included in the Gunners first-team, while he had previously branded Aaron Ramsey a ‘liability’.
