Wenger urges Arsenal to choose experience for next manager

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says they need to target experience for their next manager.

Wenger believes Arsenal chiefs must hire a manager with experience if interim boss Freddie Ljungberg fails to turn the tide in the short-term.

"If Freddie can't stabilise in the next five or six games, you will need to put it to a guy with some experience," he said at an event for the charity Grief Encounter.

"But I hope they take off with Freddie."

Arsenal are without a win in eight games in all competitions.
