Ex-Gunner Lukas Podolski believes it will be hard to find replace Arsene Wenger because ‘he is Arsenal’.

The 31-year-old German forward played under Wenger during a three-year spell at Arsenal before joining Galatasaray two years ago.

Wenger’s future continues to dominate the headlines with the Frenchman’s deal set to expire this summer. A lot has been said on the matter by several pundits and ex-Arsenal players on Wenger’s future, but Podolski believes the Frenchman is going to be a hard act to follow.

Podolski told Sky Sports (via talkSPORT):

“I follow nearly every match – when not live, on social media – and I don’t know what’s happened.

“Arsene Wenger is a good guy and a good coach. He built this club from nothing to now, and it will be interesting what happens in the next months.”

When asked whether he thinks Wenger should sign a new deal at the club, Podolski added:

“I don’t know who the guy is that can replace him. He is Arsenal.”

The Arsenal board are believed to have drawn up a list of potential replacements for Wenger, who did state after the 3-1 loss to West Brom last Saturday that he has made his mind up on his future. But the Frenchman has yet to reveal his decision to the footballing world.
