Mikel Arteta is a big risk, but Ole is a risk for Man United too

Anyone would say appointing a new manager is a risk, but it is always risky especially managing a club size Arsenal.

It is quite undertandable why they are trying to appoint Mikel Arteta. They want to appoint a manager who can last long for the club, someone like Arsene Wenger.

This is what Chelsea did, against all odd, appointing their former player Frank Lampard as manager, and he did okay so far.

But of all people, why Arteta? He was highly endorsed by Wenger, as well as Pep Guardiola who saw his credentials as a future manager.

Managing Man City first-team is no easy task, but staff and players credited Arteta as part of their title success.

If Arsenal were to appoint Carlo Ancelotti, things will be a little bit different.

Apart from his success in Milan, he struggle to lay a proper foundation and consistency at Real Madrid, Bayern, Chelsea and Napoli.

On the other hand, Arteta need more help to manage Arsenal, it’s a messy club that need to get rid of deadwood and start winning consistently.

Arsenal have not experiencing a managerial transition for a long time, but they can use Man United as an example.

The Red Devils have long been successful under Sir Alex Ferguson but when he retired, Man United struggle to stay at the same height again and they have been appointing three different managers.

Even Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big risk but at least United is sticking with him.

It will be tough time for Arteta but that is his job to change Arsenal fortune, back to its former glory once again.
