Christmas is nearly with us and it’s a busy time for football managers and players. That’s not the case though for Arsene Wenger because for the first time in over 20 years, he hasn’t got a team to manage but who will be the next team he’ll manage, could it be Bayern Munich?
It won’t be the same this Christmas with Arsene Wenger sat at home with his slippers on watching seasonal favourites on the telly. He should be out there managing a team and moaning about the number of games that are being played and referees decisions or slagging off another team.
End of an Era
Since he left Arsenal at the end of the 2017/18 season, the 69-year-old hasn’t made a return to football management. Instead he must look on and wonder why Arsenal are on a long unbeaten run and winning away games galore.
Wenger hasn’t indicated that he’s going to retire so it’s likely that he will return to football management at some point in the future, but with whom? He’d be perfect for a job with a national side but France are world champions so that doesn’t look to be a job likely to come up anytime soon. Jose Mourinho continues to look in danger of being sacked as Manchester United manager, but the thought of Wenger taking over is an unlikely one.
Real Madrid is a possibility, but Bayern Munich looks a better prospect. They are down in third in the Bundesliga, nine points behind the league leaders. If that position doesn’t improve and they don’t go deep in the Champions League, then current boss Niko Kovac could be in danger. He only took over in April but if he can’t deliver a sixth straight title win, Bayern may look elsewhere. It’s 11/10 at SkyBet they turn to Wenger to turn things around next season.
