Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern will be going through a period of uncertainty, as they will look for a new manager for the first time in two decades to take over the club.
Boss Arsene Wenger revealed that he would be leaving the Gunners at the end of this season, after years of vocal calls from the locals, but it does not appear that the Emirates Stadium outfit are anywhere near close to hiring his successor.
It does, however, appear that Arsenal are making changes to their backroom staff as, according to The Daily Mail, Jens Lehmann being considered for a role on their coaching team.
The goalkeeper, who made 200 appearances for the club, is well connected with the Gunners and had rejoined them at the start of this season as a first-team coach.
And it now appears that he could well stay at the North London giants post-Wenger, as the Gunners seek to begin a new era after the 68-year-old Frenchman.
Landlord’s Verdict: The Arsenal fans in the Tavern will be hoping the decision to offer the German a new position on the coaching staff can only be a positive move, as a number of the locals will be looking for him to help the manager who comes in to get things running smoothly.
With the club reportedly set to keep Lehmann and Steve Bould in the set-up, many punters will feel that the Gunners could be chasing a young manager, what with a more high-profile man likely to be keen on bringing his own staff with him.
