Charlie Nicholas has played both for Celtic and Arsenal, and when he was asked by Sky Sports about who Arsene Wenger’s successor could or should be at Emirates, he didn’t seem to think too long before answering.
I apologize now to Celtic fans, I know they will not like this, but of course Rodgers would be a contender
Nicholas said, and went on to explain why.
He has been different class. He is on a decent salary and he has deserved it and merited it. Absolutely, if Arsenal are looking at a list of names to replace Arsene, Rodgers would be on it
the ex-Gunner argued, before sharing his belief that Celtic’s coach should have won the Premier League already.
He plays the Arsenal way. He played the same style at Liverpool and he probably should have won the league
were Nicholas’ words, before wrapping-up his comment on Rodgers saying “everything is there for me to say ‘absolutely’ (he should be a candidate for Arsenal job)”.
Celtic have had a phenomenal season in the Scottish Premiership, winning up to now 27 of their 29 games, with the other two ending in a draw.
