Arsenal legend David Seaman says that Arsene Wenger would be great as Chelsea manager
Arsenal legend David Seaman says Arsene Wenger would be a great shout for the next Chelsea manager, but concedes that it is unlikely to happen.
Wenger left Arsenal at the end of the 2017/18 season and still hasn’t involved himself in any job. Though the Frenchman has been linked with quite a few clubs for various jobs, starting from manager to director of football.
There is one manager who is under immense pressure – Maurizio Sarri at Chelsea. The Italian arrived last summer but things haven’t gone in his way and the team is struggling in all facets of their game.
The former Napoli boss may get sacked if the Blues lose the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City.
Speaking on the Wenger-Chelsea topic, Seaman said:
“Arsene always said he wouldn’t come back to the Premier League because of his love for Arsenal, that he wouldn’t feel right competing against Arsenal.
“But obviously time’s a healer and he could think, ‘I want to go back there and prove a few people wrong’.
“For me, Arsene got a lot of criticism that wasn’t deserved over his last few years at Arsenal.
“It looks like there could be a vacancy at Chelsea quite soon, depending on their next three games which are three big games for Chelsea.
“He’d be great there, I think. He’d be great anywhere, he’s a fantastic manager.
“I would love to see him back, but I don’t think it would happen.”
Chelsea have to finish the job in the Europa League tie against Malmo tonight, before turning their attention towards the cup final against City on Sunday.
