Arsene Wenger should not be 'thrown out of Arsenal'

One suggestion that has proved popular amongst some sections of the Arsenal fan base is bringing in a Director of Football, who can provide the ruthlessness and ambition Wenger has often lacked in the transfer market - allowing Le Prof to focus on training and tactics.

Gilberto won the Premier League and two FA Cups during his six years at Arsenal, as well as reaching the 2006 Champions League final.

Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick and chief executive Ivan Gazidis have embarked on a project that is looking towards a future after Wenger's departure as they aim to put together a new structure for the club.

"If I'm the manager, I would love to keep him [next season]".

Wenger has held talks over changes to his coaching staff, with club officials keen to see their manager have less of an overall influence.

His team plays away at Southampton on Wednesday needing a win to stay in contention for a top-four finish. "We have to show now that we can be consistent until the end of the season", Wenger added. "Will it impact us I don't know, at the moment we are not in that mode because we want to qualify and we want to give ourselves a chance to be in there". A Director of Football could potentially be a great asset to Wenger, and would also give the club some sense of stability and long-term vision for after Wenger decides to hang up the managerial towel.

Former Arsenal players Robert Pires, Jens Lehmann and Sol Campbell have reminded supporters of the successful days Wenger has inspired at the club.

"Of course he should go now, but I still don't see that happening".

"I feel sorry for him but we have more strikers available now because we had the situation where [Olivier] Giroud was not clear at the start of the season, we didn't know when [Danny] Welbeck would come back, and in the end there was a congestion there. He would get that club moving in the right direction again".
