Serge Gnabry makes surprise claim about Arsene Wenger at Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich winger Serge Gnabry believes that former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger would be a perfect fit to manage the German champions.

The Frenchman has been without a club since leaving north London in 2018, and has since taken up the role of FIFA’s Chief of Global Football Development.

Wenger reportedly turned down the chance to manage the Bavarian outfit last year, but Gnabry has no doubt that he would be successful with the club despite Hansi Flick’s triumphs in recent years.

“”Do I think he [Wenger] could have success? For sure. He’s proven that he’s been a fantastic manager to lead a club,” Gnabry said, as reported by Mirror Football.

“I would say the difference [between Wenger and Flick] for myself, being an older player, it’s probably easier to communicate with the coach.

“When you just come in and you’re very young, sometimes you are maybe a little bit shy but football-wise they’re both on a very, very high level.”

Gnabry came through the academy at Arsenal during Wenger’s tenure, and went on to make 18 appearances under his management for the senior side.

Despite his potential he was sold for a modest fee of £5 million to Werder Bremen in 2016, after he was deemed ‘not at the level’ of the Premier League by Tony Pulis during a loan spell at West Bromwich Albion.

The 25-year-old went on to complete a historic treble with Bayern last season and establish his status as one of the finest attackers in the world.
