Dyche should replace Wenger as Arsenal manager – Wright

Ian Wright believes that Sean Dyche would be a suitable replacement for Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager.

Wenger signed a new two-year contract with the Gunners in the summer after months of speculation over his future.

After a difficult start to this season Arsenal have enjoyed an unbeaten September, and have climbed up the Premier League table.

But after seven games, Burnley are just one point behind the Gunners, with Sean Dyche leading an excellent campaign at Turf Moor.

Wright believes that Dyche has earned his chance to manage at a top club.

Asked whether he believes Dyche should be given the chance to replace Wenger, Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Yeah. The fact is would they give Sean Dyche that job?

“If he carries on like he’s doing they’ll probably start touting him for the England job.

“I believe he’s someone who needs to go, at some stage, to the next level in respects of a club who can play in Europe on a regular basis to learn that side of the game.

“Because we’re so bereft of any manager that’s good enough, that can take on the England job.

“If he carries on like he is he’ll probably be pushed into that role.

“Hopefully he won’t be, but would they [Arsenal] 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.”
