'Had enough cast offs', 'Instant success' - Everton fans unsure as stunning new manager report emerges
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has announced that he will be stepping down from Arsenal at the end of the season and Everton could be next on the Gunners boss’ CV, according to a report.
While the French national job has been suggested as a possibility for the 68-year-old, it is now being claimed that were Wenger to remain in the Premier League that Everton would be the club for him.
That’s due to the Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri’s previous relationship with the soon to be ex-Gunners boss, where he was a shareholder at the Emirates through Alisher Usmanov.
But the Blues faithful could not make their minds up about the idea of Wenger taking over at Goodison, despite the fact that he has three league title and seven FA Cup winning medals.
While there were supporters who felt that it would be a fantastic appointment, there were just as many who were negative about the possibility, mainly due to the Frenchman’s age.

This is a selection of Twitter reactions from supporters about their club’s link to Wenger:
Fonseca to Everton for me, but I wouldn't be at all disappointed if we had three years of Wenger creating a football philosophy & making use of our talented youngsters.

Sorry, not for me. Had enough of cast offs from Top 6 on the playing side, don’t want a managerial one too. It’s a 0 from me ????????

No thanks. I prefer a manager with the fire still burning. If Wenger takes another job, I’m not convinced it wouldn’t be a halfway retirement home for him

The mind boggles how people wouldn't have a man who despite clearly not being what he once was is still lifting up a trophy a season compared to the clown we have in charge at present

No. We need a younger manager. And our players are too disjointed to play his style…
But if Arteta came back as his Assistant, that would add a different dimension

With Arteta and Usmanov

No. We need a young vibrant manager to come in and lift the place…someone young players can relate too.

Yes. We need to build and develop. We must realsie that money does not mean instant success. Whilst the last 3 years at Arsenal have not been great, they play good football, something we have forgotten lately
