There’s little or no chance that Arsene Wenger will be replaced by likeable German Jurgen Klopp, because of wonderful recent form – and the very outside chance that we could complete a double this season…
However, due to the fact the long-serving Borussia Dortmund boss is quitting at the end of the season, it didn’t stop questions regarding his future being posed to our own long-serving boss during today’s press conference…
Wenger wasn’t particularly impressed when asked to predict Klopp’s future, as the Mirror reports.
“The circus is a bit silly,” he began.
“I’m not an agency on the case [for getting Klopp a new job].”
If we were not enjoying such a promising (potentially brilliant) season, then Klopp would be a manager most Gunners would perhaps consider a viable alternative to Wenger.
Klopp plays quick, dynamic, pressing football – and has won two Bundesliga titles up against European behemoth Bayern Munich – reaching a Champions League final, too.

His likeability though should not counter the fact that one point this term, his talented squad were well and truly stuck in a relegation battle.
We started slowly this term, but we now we’re on the verge of an FA Cup final should we dispatch Reading, and are the closest challengers to Chelsea for the title.
Perhaps when Wenger eventually decides of his own accord to move on, Klopp’s name will come up again – but right now, this isn’t our, and certainly not Wenger’s, problem.
