Former Arsenal midfielder, Ray Parlour, on Thursday urged the
Gunners’ board to appoint former Napoli manager, Carlo Ancelotti as the
club’s new permanent manager.
Arsenal is currently searching for a permanent manager after the North London club sacked Unai Emery last month and appointed Freddie Ljungberg on a temporary basis.
Ancelotti was sacked by Napoli after their 4-0 victory over Genk in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday. But Parlour now wants Arsenal to move quickly and bring Ancelotti to Emirates.
“Yeah, I’d have him [Carlo Ancelotti],” Parlour told Alan Brazil’s Sports Breakfast Show on TalkSPORT.
“You’ve got to move quickly. Look at Spurs, they had a plan. Mourinho replaced Pochettino straight away. Ancelotti has got to ask the board if they’re going to back him, if they’re going to give him money to spend.”
Ancelotti, a former Chelsea manager, has won League titles in England, France, Italy and Germany. The Italian has also coached Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
