Arsenal fans were over the moon after it emerged that Arsene Wenger is the front runner for the manager’s job at Bayern Munich.
The news was reported by Bild’s head of football, Christian Falk who also revealed that Ralf Rangnick turned down the chance to manage the Bavarian club.
Wenger has been without a club since he left Arsenal at the end of the 2017/2018 season when he stepped down after 22 years at Highbury and the Emirates Stadium.
He enjoyed a successful spell with the club, winning 10 major trophies, including three Premier League titles (via Transfermarkt)
He has been open about potentially returning to football management, however, rejected the manager’s job at Fulham as he didn’t want to manage another Premier League club due to his time with the north London giants (via The Metro).
Most recently, the Frenchman revealed that the illnesses of his brother and sister stopped him from making a return to football (via GFFN).
Fans were delighted for the former Arsenal manager, who is fluent in German, as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Hope he wins CL with them. He deserves it
