Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Latest report from BBC claims former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires believes Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger would be a good fit for the England managerial job, but hopes the French boss stays with Arsenal beyond the end of the season.
66-year-old Arsene Wenger has just celebrated his 20th anniversary with Arsenal last week.
Pires who’s now in his 40’s said as quoted by BBC, “I hope this is not the last season. Arsenal need a longer time with Wenger,”
“But if he wants to work with the national team it would be a very good combination.”
Wenger is the longest serving, most successful overseas manager in England, having won 15 trophies, including three Premier League titles and six FA Cups for Arsenal.
Pires, who played for Arsenal from 2000 to 2006, said the “challenge” of a new role would appeal to his compatriot.
The former France international – speaking at the launch of Star Sixes, a six-a-side tournament featuring former players such as Carlos Puyol and Deco – also backed Arsenal to challenge for the Premier League title.
“I believe in the squad because I still train with the team and know all the guys,” he said.
