Piers Morgan Tells Arsenal To 'Break For Bank' And Bring In Chelsea Boss Thomas Tuchel To Replace Arteta

​Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has told the club to 'break the bank' and bring in Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to replace Mikel Arteta. 


​Tuchel's managerial post at Stamford Bridge has come under scrutiny as a result of the UK government sanctions of Blues owner Roman Abramovich.

But the German boss, who guided the Blues to Champions League glory last season, insist he's still happy at the club amid the uncertainty.

And despite Arteta steering his side into the top four in the Premier League table, Morgan has urged the Gunners to sign Tuchel. 

However, he admits Arsenal won't make a move, but believes they should 'break the bank' for his coaching services. 

"Arsenal should break the bank for Thomas Tuchel. We won’t, but we should," he tweeted. ​

Morgan then responded to a journalist who said his claim was 'unfair' on Arteta. 

He tweeted: "I prefer facts to feelings. Arteta’s had 2yrs, and this season we’re not in Europe, were knocked out of both domestic cups in Jan, and are currently 21pts off the League leaders. (He also just gave our best striker away). Tuchel’s a proven world class manager who just won CL."

Responding to another critic who stated that Arteta is 'actually pretty good', Morgan replied: "Is he? Come back to me when we have a team that is competitive to win the Premier and/or Champions League."

Tuchel appears to be a popular manager, with Jamie Carragher believing that Manchester United should also make an attempt to appoint the 48-year-old. ​​

"Manchester United have been presented with the ideal opportunity to recruit the manager who should be their number one target: Thomas Tuchel," he explained in his column for The Telegraph.

"Given the events at Chelsea, United’s decision to wait until the end of the season presents them with a choice no-one could have foreseen. One of the best managers in the world – the current FIFA coach of the year – must be top of their list.

"Tuchel, like everyone else at Stamford Bridge, will have no idea what the future holds at his current club.

"No-one can offer him any assurances about how the squad will look at the start of next season given the club’s sale is on hold.

"No manager wants to be working amid such a background of uncertainty. If he gets the chance to leave for a club of United’s stature, he must take it.

"United can offer him the security and backing every top coach craves. Yes, it will seem a predatory move – taking advantage of Chelsea’s crisis – but from United and Tuchel’s perspective the more you consider it, the more of a no-brainer it is."
