I was watching Premier League news a couple of hours ago and there had an interview with Rafa Benitez and he was saying that he is waiting to get a job in the Premier League with a team that will match his ambitions of winning the Premier League.
Benitez is hoping to get the Liverpool job again but I doubt he will ever get it. He had his chance at Liverpool and I can not see them giving him another chance. So where does that leave Benitez? There is no doubt that he is a top class coach, you just have to look at his success at Valencia and Liverpool. He did not have the best of times at Inter Milan and now he wants to manage a Premier League side again.
It was thought that he could have joined Aston Villa in the summer but that move did not happen. Now I got thinking that we (Arsenal) are under pressure and there are growing voices for Wenger to be sacked or be kindly asked to move upstairs and a new manager with new ideas to come in.
My first choice to take over if Wenger were to leave is Dennis Bergkamp. He is an Arsenal legend and he may not have much managerial experience under his belt as he is currently learning the ropes as assistant at Ajax but I have no doubt he has what it takes to lead us to success. But knowing Bergkamp he will not take the manager job at Arsenal unless he is 100% sure he is capable of doing it. He may want to wait 3 or 4 years before he feels he is ready. In the meantime, would Rafa Benitez be a good choice to fill in if Wenger were to leave?
Your thoughts and views would be much welcome.
