5 reasons why Arsenal should hire Carlo Ancelotti
Frenchman Arsene Wenger is steadily inching closer to Sir Alex Ferguson's record of most Premier League games as a manager. Despite all that has been made of Arsenal's weakness in challenging for the league title, it'll be an incredible achievement for Wenger. However, a recent mind-boggling verdict in Bavaria seems to have placed an indirect threat of Wenger's making the history books.
The sacking of Italian mastermind Carlo Ancelotti has sent shock waves throughout the footballing world. While Ancelotti's dismissal is being deemed as ruthless by many, the 58-year-old coach has increasingly become one of the most sought-after coaches on the planet.
Although Wenger has been a loyal servant to Arsenal, his 21-year spell at the club has been fruitless after the Invincibles era. There has been a considerable lack of trophies at the club and the Arsenal supporters have been waiting to see the Frenchman depart since ages.
The sack of Ancelotti has placed Wenger in considerate danger of losing his job. While it's high time for Arsenal to make the change, here's why Ancelotti will be the best option to fill the Frenchman's boots at the Emirates.
#5: Ancelotti's glorious past
Carlo Ancelotti was at the helm for many European heavyweights in his glorious managerial career. The likes Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, PSG and AC Milan won trophies while he was in charge.
While many coaches and players find the Premier League a hard nut to crack, Ancelotti remains one of the five managers who has won the Premier League in his first season with an English club. Back in 2009, Ancelotti did have a good battle with Ferguson's United, winning the league ahead of the Scot.
The glorious history of Carlo Ancelotti might prove to be a mouth-watering aspect for the Gunners. Although times have changed since his stint with Chelsea, the Italian has what it takes to be a tough rival amongst all the masterminds in England.
