Liverpool great reveals who he reckons Arsenal should’ve appointed as manager.
Jamie Carragher has revealed who he felt should have been Arsenal manager.
The Liverpool legend was disappointment that the Gunners didn’t consider approaching Rafa Benitez to succeed Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.
The north London club were in the hunt for a new manager after announcing that Wenger would leave his role after 21 years.
Mikel Arteta was one of a few who were tipped to become their new boss before they eventually decided to appoint Unai Emery.
However, Carragher has admitted that the current Newcastle boss should have gotten the nod.
"Rafa is probably my biggest influence in football - I had him for six years as my manager,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
"You look at someone like Rafa and his CV, with what he's done - he's got trophies everywhere. Why wasn't he in the running for the Arsenal job?"
The Spaniard won the Champions League for Liverpool back in 2005, and Carragher was one of the key players in the side at the time.
