Wenger can give Manchester United the fresh start: Merson

Football News: Some rumors claiming that this season the EPL giants Manchester United could sack their manager and one ex-premier league star claiming the former Arsenal manager could be the right man for them.

Wenger can replace Mourinho at Old Trafford.

According to Paul Merson, the Frenchman Arsene Wenger could turn things around for the Red Devils in this season if the club decided to sack their current manager.

According to the Mirror, this week Manchester United will sack the Portuguese manager despite their last night’s result against Newcastle United.

At this stage, the French manager has not taken any liability of any other club and he has spent his 22 years in EPL where he had won 10 EPL trophies with the Gunners.

Former Gunner man believes Wenger could be the ideal man to replace Mourinho at United,

He stated: "Seriously, that's not the worst idea in the world,"

"You've got to look at what Wenger did.

"You don't have to go out and buy £70m and £80m players with some of the gems he's got over time.

"It's not a bad shout. Sometimes you just need a fresh start."

Along with Merson, his Arsenal club-mate Charlie Nicholas added: "If Manchester United are serious about clearing up the football club they have to look at someone like that."
