Arsenal legend believes Carlo Ancelotti would be a ‘perfect answer’ for the Gunners



Arsenal legend Emmanuel Petit believes Carlo Ancelotti would be a ‘perfect fit’ for the Gunners who are looking for a permanent manager.

The Gunners sacked Unai Emery at the end of November following their poor form and performances and Petit’s former teammate Freddie Ljunbjerg has taken over at the helm on a temporary basis.

Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli a week ago despite his last game being a 4-0 win over Genk that helped the Italian side qualify for the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

Clubs around the world are after the services of the illustrious manager as Everton and former club AC Milan have all been linked as potential destinations for Ancelotti.

If reports were to be believed, the Toffees are the favourites to sign Ancelotti which Invincibles member Petit believes would be a huge mistake.

The French World Cup winner believes that the Italian is still one of the best coaches in the world and has stated that it is rare that a great manager is available mid-season so Arsenal have to go after him.

With Ancelotti’s standing in the game and his previous accomplishments, Petit thinks that the 60-year-old would be a ‘perfect answer’ for the Gunners search for a new manager.

Odds of Next Permanent Arsenal Manager

8/11- Mikel Arteta

5/1- Carlo Ancelotti

8/1- Freddie Ljunbjerg

10/1- Massimiliano Allegri

12/1- Patrick Vieira

However, it does look like Everton are in the lead to attain the services of the former Bayern Munich manager as reports have suggested that talks have already commenced between both parties.

The Toffees are currently led by former player Duncan Ferguson having sacked Portuguese coach Marco Silva following Everton’s terrible form.

Reports have suggested that Ancelotti is still on Arsenal’s shortlist but Manchester City assistant manager Mikel Arteta and Nice manager Patrick Vieira are the club’s ideal candidates as they have both previously played for the club.

The Gunners have had a very disappointing season so far as they were one of the favourites to finish in the top four considering the situations that their rivals were in.

Manchester United and Chelsea were set to rebuild under former players Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard respectively but they are both ahead of the Gunners in the table.

The same goes for bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur who sacked Mauricio Pochettino since they were struggling but are now four points ahead of Arsenal.

Ljungberg’s side are now in 9th place, 7 points adrift of the top four places and look like they are once again, going to miss out on Champions League football.
