Arsenal legend insists: We need a Pochettino not a Wenger

Guardiola claimed the first silverware of his 18-month spell at City with a 3-0 demolition of Arsenal at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, with the Premier League title nearly certain to follow.

Asked whether former Gunners striker Thierry Henry could succeed Wenger as manager, Wright said the time may not be right. "It wasn't that hard to avoid".

Speaking ahead of Thursday's Premier League clash with Manchester City, Wenger once again maintained that stance but admitted those above him could always decide it was time to bring an end to his 21-year reign. I am not sure anyone can. It would have been fantastic to win the Carabao (League) Cup and then hopefully backing that up with winning the Europa League. "That's what Man United did a year ago".

The former Manchester United defender blasted Wenger's players for their disastrous showing at Wembley, labelling them "spineless", and "patethic".

"We got to the final and you don't get there by coincidence. It was a frightful feeling", he wrote on

Early in his tenure, he was renowned as a defensive coach, and his team were tough to break down; last term they netted an incredible 107 goals in the top flight and were very much on the front foot in matches.

"But I saw things out on that pitch from Arsenal. I don't see anyone doing that on or off the pitch and the manager has to take responsibility for that". What is important in football is the game.

Arsenal signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the January transfer window.

With that in mind, Germany coach Low has been earmarked to arrive at the north London club, but will only give a decision after the World Cup this year.

"But Arsenal insiders suggest there could be an "adult conversation" and they will review his role, whether Wenger can still take the club forward and, most importantly, the overall performance of the team".

Arsenal's season is threatening to unravel - it is 10 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the EPL table and looks set to miss out on UEFA Champions League football for a second straight year.
