Roberto Martinez has been suggested as a replacement for Arsene Wenger at Arsenal but don't forget about this Bundesliga boss.
All of the talk today has centred around the idea of Roberto Martinez replacing Arsene Wenger should the Frenchman be moved on from the Gunners this summer.
Martinez’ Everton side outwitted their Premier League rivals in the race for fourth place over the weekend, which has left plenty of Gunners marvelling at the possibility of what Martinez could achieve in charge at the Emirates.
However, if the club decides not to renew Wenger’s contract beyond this season, potentially prompting him into early retirement, there is a name the club should consider and it’s not Roberto Martinez.
Jurgen Klopp is the man Arsenal should move heaven and earth to try and get a hold of.
Klopp is an individual who has guided his Borussia Dortmund side to silverware in the recent past, breaking the dominance of Bayern Munich in the modern era.
Yes, he’s struggled this season but he’s routinely forced to see his club sell their best players to a main rival and BVB have struggled in terms of injuries to key problems with Ilkay Gundogan’s problems this season well documented.
The main reason Klopp would be a better option than Martinez is because he has the experience needed to manage a huge football business, club and brand a far greater commercial brand than Martinez is currently developing at Everton.
Needless to say the benefits of Klopp becoming Arsenal boss would be huge in terms of the players he could attract.
He’s said himself in the past that he treats players as co-workers and tries to engineer situations where he gets them to want to work with him rather than play for him, as his teams go about their goals.
He knows how to develop younger players which would be important in terms of the academy at Arsenal and he’d also be an important individual in terms of getting the best out of the German core at the club.
It’s also important to consider that the circumstances which could see Wenger moved on would probably be based around the side finishing outside the top four, with Everton potentially sneaking in.
Should that happen then it would take an almighty struggle on the part of Arsenal to prise the Spaniard away from the Merseyside club.
In contrast, Klopp is in a situation where he could desire a fresh start as Bayern Munich have secured another comfortable Bundesliga title win as he watches another of his best players (Robert Lewandowksi) preparing to leave in the summer.
