The ex-Gunners defender acknowledges that a move is difficult to acquire a famous previous manager, however, he thinks the Frenchman is the correct choice.
Arsene Wenger will be the “right” decision to succeed Arsenal Chairman Sir Chips Keswick, says Martin Keown, however, a “private” appointment is regarded controversial.
The Gunners are searching for another leader after it’s revealed that Sir Chips will step down from his ebb and flow post after 15 years.
Who the club ‘s management, drove by proprietor Stan Kroenke, will look to for guidance remains to be seen from the top.
Keown says Arsenal should reach out to previous supervisor Wenger who saw the finish of his notable 22-year reign as manager in the summer of 2018. His intimate relationship with the club would make him a decent decision to step back in at Emirates Stadium, allowing the Frenchman to offer valuable advice to current coach Mikel Arteta and others calling off the field shots.
The previous defender of Arsenal Keown talked to SPORT about his approach to finding another president:
“Sir Chips is somebody who’s been there for fifteen years, taking over from Peter Hill-Wood, and I think the club was pleased with the work that he did there. To see Arsene Wenger go onto the board would be something special. I don’t think so however, I think he said he would not like to do it as of late, he never saw himself as anyone sitting on the board, yet they could do a lot of more terrible. You realize that I feel it would be almost the ideal reaction for Kroenke, the youthful Josh Kroenke, maybe he needs that more established person, somebody with the experience around him.”
