Brendan Rodgers named as one of latest options to potentially replace Mikel Arteta at Arsenal

Brendan Rodgers named as one of latest options to potentially replace Mikel Arteta at Arsenal

Two more names have been touted as potential Mikel Arteta replacements at Arsenal this weekend.

Arsenal struggling

Arsenal’s 2021/22 Premier League campaign got off to an absolute nightmare start.

The Gunners would begin their season against newly-promoted Brentford, who had never previously lined out in the Premier League.

The Bees, though, were able to take advantage of some poor Arsenal defending, especially from Ben White and Pablo Mari, to earn a 2-0 win.

The Gunners followed this up by losing 2-0 to Chelsea, though that game could easily have ended with Thomas Tuchel’s men netting four or five.

And this is exactly what Manchester City managed in Arsenal’s last outing before the international break, putting five past the North Londoners, who, it was later revealed, had therefore endured their worst start to a top-flight campaign since 1954/55.

Such a poor opening to the season has already seen Mikel Arteta’s future at the Emirates called into question, with reports at the back end of August having suggested that the capital outfit are likely to make Antonio Conte their first-choice target to replace the Spaniard.

Then, on Saturday, both Brighton boss Graham Potter and Brentford manager Thomas Frank, according to TEAMtalk, emerged as potential head coach candidates at Arsenal, if they decide to move on from Arteta.

Rodgers and Nice boss eyed

Granted, Arsenal and Arteta have since picked up their first league win of the season.

But even that tie, at home against a newly promoted Norwich side, was not exactly the most convincing of wins for the Gunners.

So, whilst Arteta has likely eased the pressure on himself at least for the time being, it is safe to assume that his job is still not entirely safe.

And, as mentioned above, yet another pair of managers are now being touted as potential replacements for the Spaniard in north London.

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast [as cited by football.london] this week, Ian McGarry claimed that Arsenal are looking at Nice boss Christophe Galtier and Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers as possible options to replace Arteta, if the club do decide to sack him in the coming weeks.
