Harry Redknapp suggests two candidates to succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal

Who should succeed Arsene Wenger when he eventually leaves Arsenal?

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has suggested in The London Evening Standard that Steve Bould or Tony Adams should succeed Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal since 1996 and has a contract that runs until June 2017, and is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time in the Premier League.

“Why shouldn’t Arsenal give Steve Bould a go? Or Tony Adams?” former Tottenham boss Redknapp wrote in The London Evening Standard.

Bould is Arsenal’s assistant manager at the moment, while Adams is one of the greatest players in the North London club’s history.

While Redknapp has a point in suggesting the duo as potential candidates to eventually succeed Wenger as the Arsenal boss, there are better managers out there.

Adams may know Arsenal inside out, but he had not had huge success as a manager at Wycombe Wanderers, Portsmouth or Gabala.

Given how football has ‘evolved’ over the years, it would be a huge gamble from Arsenal to give Bould or Adams the job.
