Nicholas wants Wenger return as Arsenal technical director

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas believes that it is time for the club to bring Arsene Wenger back into the fold.

While Nicholas does not think Wenger should return as manager, he believes that a technical director role would be suitable.

Wenger spent much of his career at the club, winning several Premier League titles and other important trophies with Arsenal.

But he was replaced in the summer of 2018 by Unai Emery, with the club believing it was the best way to move forward.

Speaking about the circumstances at the club, Nicholas told Sky Sports: "I would go in for Wenger and get him on the board or get him in as the technical director.

"Why let him talk to Bayern Munich and float about on TV when you can have that brain, fabric and understanding at the club right.

"He could work with an experienced manager to get it right. He can also improve the decision making. Why did Arsenal miss out on Gary Cahill, for example?

"Wenger couldn't sort his own problems, but he could help Emery in certain ways. I was always teased about the hierarchy not being right, but we have around four guys arguing over transfers.

"Is Edu the one who says these are the players Arsenal are getting? Is he in strong communication with Emery?"
