Robbie Savage suggests Arsenal will be gutted they missed out on this manager

Robbie Savage suggests that Arsenal should have appointed current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as their manager.

Former Leicester City midfielder Robbie Savage has suggested in The Mirror that Arsenal should have appointed Jurgen Klopp as their manager.

Klopp was appointed the Liverpool boss in October 2015 following the dismissal of Brendan Rodgers.

While the Reds’ performances and results in the Premier League have been inconsistent, there is a good chance that the Merseyside outfit could qualify for the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Savage has suggested in The Mirror that North London outfit Arsenal could regret their decision not to make a move for Klopp when they had the chance to.

While making an apology for being critical of the German coach earlier in the season, the former Wales international midfielder wrote in The Mirror: "So apologies for jumping to conclusions, Herr Klopp.

“And once I’ve had my serving of humble pie, I suspect there will be some big clubs – notably Arsenal – who will be gutted they missed out on your services.”

Klopp is a brilliant manager, but would Arsenal really regret missing out on the former Borussia Dortmund boss?

What were the Gunners chiefs supposed to do when Klopp became available? Sack Wenger, a manager who has made the club one of the biggest in the world?

True, Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since 2004, but could anyone have given any guarantee that Klopp would have led the Gunners to glory this campaign?
