Robbie Savage suggests a managerial candidate for Arsenal

Robbie Savage suggests that Arsenal should move for Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Former Leicester City and Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage has suggested in The Mirror that Diego Simeone would be a good manager for Arsenal.

While explaining why Arsenal need to change managers in the summer, Savage stated: “Diego Simeone was conducting the crowd from the technical area as his Atletico Madrid side knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League this week... I wonder if he would turn Arsenal into winners if they invited him to call the tune?”

Simeone has been in charge of Atletico Madrid since 2011 and has a contract with the Spanish club until June 2020.

The former Argentina international has done a remarkable job at Atletico, who won La Liga during the 2013-14 season.

The Madrid outfit also clinched the Europa League in 2011-12 and reached the final of the Champions League in 2013-14.

Los Rojiblancos are still in the title race in La Liga this season and have also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

The way Simeone has transformed Atletico over the last few years has been superb, but one point to note is that the football they play is not exactly breathtaking.

Maybe that is partly because the former River Plate manager does not have those kinds of players at his disposal.

Even if Arsenal were interested in Simeone, why would the Argentine leave Atletico in the summer, especially if they win a major trophy this season?
