Robert Pires Backs Wonderful PL Boss To Replace Arteta At Arsenal
The Gunners legend Robert Pires has backed Luis Enrique to take over from Mikel Arteta if he is appointed as Arsenal manager next season.
Arsene Wenger’s replacement remains the main talking point at the Emirates following their FA Cup final win against Chelsea last weekend – and former Barcelona boss Enrique has been touted as favorite for the role, despite having no English experience.
Pires, who won two Premier League titles and three FA Cups during his six seasons at Arsenal, believes the Spaniard would be a ‘wonderful’ appointment.
I think he would be a wonderful coach for Arsenal,” Pires told Sky Sports News. “He knows the Premier League, he has been a very successful coach with Barcelona and he has great charisma.
“He’s a winner, he knows how to manage big players and I think it would be a very good choice for the club.”
Arsenal is yet to make an official announcement on Wenger’s replacement, but Pires is confident that they will make the right decision.
It’s very important because Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in England, and the players need to be happy with the appointment,” he said.

Pires was speaking at his Robert Pires Football Academy in Mumbai, which he set up in 2017 to help young Indian footballers achieve their dream of playing at the highest level.
“My academy is giving a chance to the talented kids in India,” Pires said. “I want to see them on the same stage as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar one day. That is my dream.”
“The Robert Pires Football Academy is giving opportunities to talented players in India. Young footballers will have the chance to learn from my experience, but they must have raw talent and dedication. I really want to help them become Indian football stars of the future.”
