Ray Parlour believes that Arsenal should replace Arsene Wenger with an ex-player, because he is an ex-player and they usually cannot see further than their own noses.
Parlour thinks that the Gunners should already have a succession plan in place, and believes that succession plan should involve one of his old teammates.
“If I was Arsenal now, I’d be looking in two years time, whenever it’s going to be and see who is going to be interested in taking over. Try and put it in place now. Managers don’t hang around.
“Do you know who would be perfect one day? Patrick Vieira. He’s manager at New York, but now he’s probably in line for the Man City job instead of Arsenal. He’s part of their club.
“In the future, maybe Thierry Henry. He’s a very intelligent guy, he knows the players, he knows the dressing room and he knows how to attract big players. He could be perfect for it.
“Will he get an opportunity? Who knows. I would always look at ex-players.
“I know it doesn’t always work out like that with Tony Adams and such, but if they know the club inside out, which Vieira and Henry do, it gives you a big advantage.”
