Ray Parlour tells Arsenal to appoint Ancelotti as new manager

0 4

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.
