Liverpool’s Number 2 in line to become the next Arsenal boss
Jurgen Klopp’s assistant manager for 17 years has decided to take some time off the first team duties because of personal reasons. The man in question Zeljko Buvac who has worked with Sven Mislintat before at Borussia Dortmund and the new Arsenal’s head of recruitment is believed to be an admirer of Klopp’s number 2. He is reported to be pushing for him to become the next Arsenal manager after Wenger leaves at the end of this season. Buvac has worked with Klopp since his days at Mainz and he has been called ‘the best signing ever’ by the Liverpool boss. He is believed to be the brains behind the German coach’s success which is no surprise why Sven Mislintat is vouching for him. These reports are starting to paint a picture of the type of manager that Arsenal is looking for. They are more into someone who has experience with big clubs whether being a coach, assistant or even a retired player who played at the highest level and understands the pressure of having to win every match.
Questions have been raised about Buvac though by analysts like the former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy. He said, “I would find it unbelievable to appoint someone who has never, ever managed as a number one at a club like Arsenal. I think that would be ridiculous for a club like Arsenal.” The former defender does not care how intelligent Buvac might be because he has not proved his worth as the main guy. Therefore, he is not ready for a big club like Arsenal. Do you think Murphy is right?
