Merson: Rodgers The Perfect Fit For Arsenal

share on:

Former Arsenal midfielder, Paul Merson believes former Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers is the man to take over from Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman has come under fire this season, with increased calls from the fans and legends for a change in the dugout.

Rodgers almost won the PL with Liverpool and has been impressive with Celtic since taking over. And Merson believes he is the ideal replacement for Wenger.

The ex-Gunners midfielder told Sky Sports on Rodgers: “I don’t know why he doesn’t get the Arsenal job?

“He fits Arsenal great. The nearest Liverpool have ever come to winning the league for a long, long time is when Brendan Rodgers was in charge.

“He’s done nothing wrong at Celtic. To do what they’ve done, people can say it’s Scottish football and Celtic are head and shoulders above, but every team they played on that run treated it like a cup final, which is difficult sometimes – especially when you’re Celtic and know you’re better than everybody else.

“But I think he now needs a change and needs to come back down [to England].

“I’ll be shocked if he didn’t get a good job. I’d be quite shocked if he didn’t get the Arsenal job.”
