He's the most successful Arsenal manager in history, leading the club to three Premiership titles (including the illustrious "Invincibles"), four FA Cups and many strong runs in international competition during his 15 years as manager. His cerebral, forward-thinking managerial style earned him the nickname of "Le Professeur."
Although there have been signs of improvement as of late and young players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Francis Coquelin indicate a promising future for the Gunners and their boss, the present looks a little bleaker. Le Boss has expressed a desire to stay at the Emirates, and as of now, he has the club's support. But should the Gunners continue to struggle this season, Wenger may be looking at an exit, and you can be sure the club will look to him in choosing a successor.
Speculation has also recently emerged about Wenger being tapped to leave Arsenal for another job opportunity. Sven-Göran Eriksson has recommended the manager as a possible replacement for Fabio Capello when he leaves the England squad at the end of Euro 2012, citing his adaptability and passion for the game. This may prove to be a bit of a long shot, though.
This isn't about whether or not Arsene Wenger will leave the Emirates, or whether or not he should. But in the event he does, the club will have a pretty difficult task in replacing him. Here are 10 possible successors who could take over for the club upon the departure of Le Professeur. If you have any suggestions you'd like to share, please tell us in the comments.
