FORMER Celtic player, Charlie Nicholas has touted Brendan Rodgers to be the next Arsenal boss after it was revealed this morning that Arsene Wenger was stepping down at the end of the season.
Within half an hour of the announcement, Nicholas broke out the fake bake and had Brendan Rodgers installed as his number one choice for the vacant position.
“There has been a few in the past that are always linked, but some of them have actually went into a downturn in their career, one was Ronald Koeman until he went to Everton and that didn’t quite work for him.
“Sorry, Celtic fans, I have to say this, but the style of Brendan Rodgers in Scotland has been breathtakingly good. He probably should have won the league with Liverpool so he has the credentials for me.”
Brendan Rodgers used his press conference yesterday to reaffirm his commitment to Celtic and said there is still a lot of work to be done in Glasgow before he moves on.
Arsenal have a massive job replacing their manager of 22 years, like Ferguson leaving Manchester United it’s going to be a hard act to follow – even if Arsene didn’t quite hit the heights of the late 90s/00s in the past ten years.
