BBC Football pundit Robbie Savage has named three coaches who he believes will stop Arsenal from going backwards.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has taken a hammering in the media over the last few weeks after consecutive losses and their Champions League exit , and Robbie Savage has piled on yet more misery for the Frenchman.

It has been a strange year for the Gunners, and one where for much of the season they looked like genuine title-challengers. Topping the premier league table for over three months.

Injuries to key players in January haltered things momentarily, but a failure to improve the squad in the January transfer window and a dreadful run in February and March has left a certain number of Arsenal fans calling for Wenger’s head.

In his Mirror column, Robbie Savage has been critical of Arsenal’s play over the last six weeks, and believes a failure to win the FA Cup and claim a Champions League spot for next season should be followed by Wenger walking away.

The proposition of Arsenal without their current boss could result in a free-fall similar to that of Manchester United. However, Savage believes Arsene Wenger’s side are already on the decline, and has named three managers who could help them return to the top.

“Wenger will be a hard act to follow after 18 years in charge. But don’t tell me there are no decent coaches out there with the potential to take Arsenal forward into a brave new era.”

“Juventus coach Antonio Conte, Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone, perhaps even Everton’s Roberto Martinez… all of them preach progressive football, whereas Wenger’s team appears to be going backwards.”

Who would be best suited to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal?
