One more year: 5 ways Arsenal can succeed with Arsene Wenger in charge

Hire a Sporting Director

Arsene Wenger is one of a few managers remaining who has full control over the club’s transfer policy and that’s likely to change when he leaves. As such, it might be a good idea to appoint a Sporting Director this summer to oversee Wenger’s final year and ease the transition in the 2018/19 season.

Last week, The Telegraph reported that Arsenal have begun their search to fill this role and there’s exciting options to consider; include Sevilla’s Monchi, who’s earned a stellar reputation in his role at the Spanish side, and Arsenal legend Robert Pires, who’s made it clear he wants to move into this role.

Monchi offers experience at the highest level whereas Pires already knows the club well. Both would be good appointments and it would ease the pressure on Wenger, whilst allowing an easier transition when he goes.
