The ex-Arsenal player Remi Garde, who is now coach at the French giants Lyon, believes that Arsene Wenger would be perfect to relace Laurent Blanc as manager of France after this summer’s Euro 2012 tournament.
“It could very well go to him,” Garde said “He’s very familiar with European football, world football and the players because he follows the French championship.
“He would, in the case of Laurent leaving, be an interesting choice for French football. He’s one of football’s greats.”
After Arsenal’s terrible start to this season, Wenger said in an interview that he would consider his position if he failed to meet his objective’s this year (Top Four?), but has since stated that he will fulfil his contract at contract at Arsenal which still has 18 months to run.
So if Arsenal don’t win anything this season or finish in the Top Four, perhaps Wenger would consider the France job as a sort of semi-retirement?
There is no doubt he would do a very good job…….
