Surprise! Xavi Hernandes could replace Mikel Arteta at Arsenal
Recently, the rumors of Mikel Arteta’s dismissal from the Arsenal coaching chair have been increasingly echoing. Even more surprising, several names have begun to emerge that are claimed to be candidates for the new North London Club coach.
It must be admitted that Mikel Arteta’s position in the managerial chair is shaky after the Gunners swallowed their bad results. Arsenal have never won in the last 7 league matches, even being able to score only three goals during that period.
The man from Spain himself heard very well about the issue of his dismissal, but he said he was calm and claimed to have received full support from the management of the Gunners.
But still, the speculation of his dismissal cannot be suppressed, Arsenal are considered to need a change. Moreover, after the club had just been eliminated sadly from the League Cup after the 1-4 defeat to Manchester City at home.
Flashback to decades ago, in fact this was the start of the league’s worst season since 1974-75. Now they are stuck in 15th place in the standings due to a series of defeats that have been swallowed up.
4 wins in 14 games means the North London club who once set the Invincibles record are now just four points from the Red Zone. The situation is getting worse, the player’s confidence is dry.
Arteta actually proved himself last season, by leading his team to win the FA Cup after replacing Unai Emery. However, the rest went bad for him.
On the one hand, there are claims that Arteta is actually the right person for Arsenal, it’s just that the players in his team currently aren’t quite right.
But what is clear, several names of coaches who are believed to be candidates for the new manager of the Gunners to replace Arteta have begun to emerge.
The name of the former successful Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has been mentioned in recent weeks. And surprisingly, Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandes has also been named as a candidate.
Xavi himself has been working with the Qatari club, Al Sadd, since 2019. He was supported to return to Barcelona as a coach, it’s just that he felt he was still not worthy to occupy the position.
