Arsenal, Man United & Rui Fari

A new name has been thrown into the mix as a possible successor to Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Man United assistant coach Rui Faria has been listed as a candidate for the Gunners managerial post.

Rui Faria has been a constant presence of the bench next to Jose Mourinho in recent years.

The Portuguese coach has worked with the Special One at Chelsea, Real Madrid and now Man United.

Arsenal’s 14-man shortlist

According to the Sun, Rui Faria’s name has been included on a 14-man shortlist for the Gunners job. Readers are told:

Jose Mourinho’s No 2 Rui Faria has emerged as a shock contender for the Arsenal job.

The Gunners have compiled a 14-man shortlist as they look for Arsene Wenger’s replacement.

And their willingness to consider Manchester United assistant Faria — Mourinho’s loyal right-hand man — shows their determination to find the right man.

Will Faria get the job? That seems unlikely.

Arsenal fans react badly

As news of Rui Faria’s links to Arsenal spread, Arsenal fans have taken to social media to vent.

Considering the coach’s past, it’s not surprising that most Gooners have taken a negative outlook to the Faria rumours.
