Keys suggests United, Arsenal fight over former Prem winning boss

Mancini Touchline

Renowned broadcaster suggests a manager well known to Premier League audiences succeed Arsene Wenger or David Moyes at Manchester United.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have disgruntled fans.

In the case of the former it is because Sir Alex Ferguson's chosen successor David Moyes has failed in all three domestic competitions, while their status as a Champions League football club is hanging by a thread as they occupy seventh in the Premier League and face reigning and defending European titlists Bayern Munich in the quarter final.

For the latter, it is because perpetual media criticism of Arsene Wenger being tactically naive is beginning to wear thin on supporters who had reaffirmed their loyalty to the Frenchman this season, a campaign that had looked to be so promising, only to begin questioning it again after embarrassing heavy losses to Manchester City, Liverpool and, most recently and humbling, Chelsea.

Broadcaster Richard Keys has a suggestion… replace Moyes/Wenger with a manager accustomed to collecting trophies and one experienced in England, perhaps one who has already won the Premier League crown.

His suggestion?

Roberto Mancini.

His only question remains - who will get him first?
