Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is the longest serving Premier League manager, having been at Arsenal since 1996, and he has been one of the most successful coaches in Arsenal’s long and successful history as a football club.
Arsene Wenger – Arsenal manager
And today he has given his support to John Carver to be the new Newcastle head coach, and points out that the average tenure of any permanent manager in the Premier League these days is only about 12 months, so to call John the interim coach is a little bit strange.
Here’s what Arsene said on the Arsenal website today:
“John Carver is a permanent manager. The length of our permanence today is very difficult to define.” “The average life expectancy of a manager in England is 12 months, so it is very difficult to predict how long any of us will be in charge. He has the qualities to do the job.”
John Carver has made a poor start to his timer as the head coach of Newcastle, and has only won two games in eleven, but as we all know he has not been helped by Newcastle’s upper management who refused to fortify the squad in January.
The Newcastle coach only has 15 senior players to choose from for the game tomorrow.
Arsene himself has been under pressure for a few years at the north London club, because he hasn’t won too many trophies, although Arsenal did win the FA Cup last year and are in the semi-finals of the same competition this year and they will play Reading.
Last year Arsenal beat Hull City at Wembley 3-2 after extra time, after surprisingly going 2-0 down after only eight minutes.
Ramsey scored the winner after 108 minutes after the teams finished 90 minutes tied at 2-2.
Arsenal are overwhelming favorites to win the game tomorrow, even with Newcastle fans.
