Published

on

Former Arsenal defender, Martin Keown, has said legendary manager Arsene Wenger, would be the perfect choice to become the new Arsenal chairman.

Sir Chips Keswick retired from the position last week, after spending 15 years on the board.

Keswick admitted he always wanted to leave, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made him bring his decision forward.

The Gunners are now looking for Keswick’s successor and Keown insists Arsenal should look no further than Wenger.

“It would be something special to see Arsene Wenger come onto the board.

“I don’t think so somehow, I think he’s said recently he doesn’t want to do that, never saw himself as someone who would sit on the board but they could do a lot worse.

“You know that I feel that would be almost the perfect answer for Kroenke, the young Josh Kroenke, he needs that older person perhaps around, someone with the experience,” Keown told talkSPORT.

Rohr must win trophies, not just qualifying for tournaments – Akanni

I will accept a pay cut to coach Eagles- Rohr

An ex-international footballer, Wahidi Akanni, on Tuesday said with the re-appointment of Gernot Rohr as the manager of the Super Eagles, winning trophies should be his major focus rather than qualifying for major tournaments.

Akanni said this in an interview with Newsmen in Lagos.

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) recently renewed  Rorh’s contract as coach of the Super Eagles for another two and half years.

“Well, having been on the job now for sometime, he’s got a good knowledge of the players in the team, I will expect to see a certain play pattern for the team that can make him achieve what NFF has set for him.

“Nigerians will expect better results than just qualifying for tournaments. Nigeria needs to win trophies.

“It is no longer enough that we qualify for major tournaments, we ought to have moved passed that and set new goals,” Akanni said.

Recently, the minister of Youths and Sports, Mr Sunday Dare, stated that the NFF could terminate the appointment of Rohr whenever they felt he was falling short.

But Akanni wondered whether Rohr needed such reminders at this time.

“My opinion will be that, he’s just renewed his contract, he should be allowed to work.

“Dangling harsh or sack tunes on him now is not good for the super eagles, in as much as I am not a fan of foreign coaches.

“He was employed as the coach, he should be allowed to work and until he doesn’t perform, then he can be relieved of his job,” the former Lagos FA boss said.
