According to the Daily Mirror, Newcastle United Head Coach, Raphael Benitez, is on the shortlist of managers to supersede Arsene Wenger.
Wenger’s contract runs out at the cessation of this season and it unsure if the Frenchman will sign an incipient one due to the incrementing discontent within the fans. With that in mind, the Arsenal board have commenced drawing up supersessions for the longtime Arsenal ascendant figure, with Raphael Benitez very much in the running.
If the Spaniard were to be given were to be given the job, it is reported that he’d bring Thierry Henry onto his coaching staff. Albeit Benitez’s Newcastle sit top of the Championship and liable to get promote, rumours did emerge last month that he could leave the club.
If the move were to materialise it would be a shock to both sets of fans, albeit for differing reasons.
