Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has tipped Burnley manager, Sean Dyche for the Arsenal job whenever legendary manager, Arsene Wenger decides to leave the Emirates Stadium. The Englishman has earned admirers for his work at Turf Moor after the Clarets returned to the topflight last term. Wright has thrown his weight behind the 46-year-old manager who has been fondly nicknamed, “Ginger Mourinho” for the way he sets up his teams to play.

Wenger recently signed a two-year extension to his deal that is expected to expire at the end of the 2018/19 season. This current deal is expected to be his last at Arsenal and legend, Wright has thrown the gauntlet to the board at Arsenal to consider Dyche for the position.

Fans were very vocal in their criticism of the French manager, especially after it emerged that the Gunners wouldn’t finish in the Champions League places, the first time since Wenger arrived the club back in ’96. Wright is a legendary figure at the club as he netted over 150 goals for the club and becoming the club’s all-time top scorer before being usurped to that title by Thierry Henry.

As quoted by Goal, he spoke about Dyche’s suitability for the job but expressed doubt about whether the board will be willing to give him the job.

He said: “I believe he is somebody that needs to go, at some stage, to the next level,” “Yeah. The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job? “In respect to how his team sets up when they’re defending, he’s obviously got acumen – but will he get a job like that? I don’t think he will.” he added.

Burnley boss, Dyche hqs impressed since leading the Clarets back to the Premier League last season. He got relegated after a season in 2014/2015 and subsequently won the Championship in 15/16 and was impressive last term, keeping the club with one of the best home records in the entire league.
