New Arsenal Manager Shortlist

Since Arsene Wenger announced that his 22-year spell at Arsenal will end this summer, the search has been on between fans over who will replace him in the Emirates dug-out next season.
The current favourite is former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique after previous favourite Carlo Ancelotti seemed to remove himself by making eyes and cooing noises at the Italian FA for the national job.
Enrique would be assured a warm Gunners welcome as would second favourite Joachim Low of Germany but the welcome would be a lot more lukewarm for Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers who is worryingly third favourite at the moment.
Also included on the Stan Kroenke shortlist is Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus, Ralf Rangnick of RB Leipzig, Rafael Benitez of Newcastle, Bournemouth's Eddie Howe, Eusebio Di Francesco of Roma, Leonardo Jardim of Monaco and Atletico Madrid's Diego Simeone.
The scribbled names on the piece of paper in Kroenke's greasy little hand will grow shorter as managers rule themselves out but as long as we don't hear the words 'Brendan Rodger' and 'new Arsenal manager' in the same sentence before August then i think Arsenal fans will be happy with any of them on the shortlist but i hope the Arsenal board will be fluttering their eyelashes at Luis Enrique just that bit more than the others.
