Ex-Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes Arsene Wenger will 'never be sacked' but admits his old club might need a new manager for a fresh impetus.
Arsenal have had their worst have endured their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign, and the pressure has been weighing heavy on Wenger.
Parlour made over 300 appearances in a 12 year spell at the club, and he thinks Arsenal should have a plan in place to replace the Frenchman.
He wrote on Sportlobster.com "As long as the club have a plan [for a new manager], I am okay with it.
"I am biased towards Wenger because I played under him, but his methods now are exactly what we did. If the plan is for fresh ideas and the right person becomes available, then it is something to look at.
Alisher Usmanov made his concerns with Wenger public this week, and his opponent last night, Jurgen Klopp, has been heavily linked with the Emirates Stadium but Parlour is adamant the manager would not be forced out of the club.
“But it is Arsene’s decision. He’d never be sacked.”
Captain Mikel Arteta came off injured last night and the former England international Parlour thinks now would be a good time to appoint centre-back Per Mertesacker as the new leader.
