50% Of Arsenal Board Wants Carlo Ancelotti — Reports

Longtime Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger announced Friday that he is leaving the club after nearly 22 years at the helm.

The former Red Devils coach said he was pleased that Wenger made the announcement at this stage of the season, as he can now have the send-off that he truly deserves.

Aside from securing the FA Cup title the following year, Arsenal's track record entered a period of drought until the 2013/14 season, when they narrowly beat Hull City 3-2 in the FA Cup final.

And Gazidis, who has been with Arsenal since November 2008, insisted there would be no 'replacement' for Wenger, but instead a 'new path forward' for the club.

The club's chiefs have confirmed they will appoint Wenger's successor as soon as possible with the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Leonardo Jardim, Thomas Tuchel and Luis Enrique among the candidates.

"We're not going to find a replacement for Arsene Wenger".

Wenger will take charge of five more Premier League games, starting on Sunday with West Ham's visit to the Emirates (1.30pm).

"Arsene and the club need time to prepare". That's a dream for me.

Celtic majority shareholder Dermot Desmond has dug his own grave by admitting that he could let Brendan Rodgers leave Parkhead at the end of the season.

Wenger confirmed the decision this morning and, as ever, he stressed the importance of maintaining the values he has embodied in his time in English football.

"There will be a moment - and I don't know when - when I say 'Thank you very much'".

"Arsene changed the game".

'Before 1996, the fans in England would call them "boring Arsenal". Vieira's contract runs through this season. His understanding and empathy for people.

"I always had the feeling that I had with Joachim Low or Jupp Heynckes".

The Gunners signed Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the January transfer window. "If he's happy with the decision, I'm really happy and I hope he doesn't retire from football".
