Limpar: Only a Gooner should succeed Wenger at Arsenal

Arsenal hero Anders Limpar believes a former Gunners player should succeed Arsene Wenger as next manager.

Limpar, who played for Arsenal in the years before Wenger arrived, is not convinced that the current manager should be departing the Emirates as soon as May 2017.

But if he must, the Swede tells the London Evening Standard: “If he goes, when he goes, whether that's a year or five years, we should probably take an old player.

“Tony Adams maybe. Or Dennis Bergkamp.

“A lot of old players could take over, but Arsene's not done yet. When the time comes we should pick a high-profile player.

“Why not Dennis? He'd be great. Take him and Thierry Henry as an assistant. They know the system, they know the club."
