Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal: What next after manager's departure? by leezloaded(: 2:23 am On Apr 24
New faces behind the scenes, a five-man shortlist and the dilemma of whether to go for experience or potential.
This is the backdrop as Arsenal seek a new manager for the first time in nearly 22 years after Arsene Wenger's announcement he will step down at the end of the season.
But where does the news leave the north London club? And what might happen next? BBC Sport's David Ornstein explains...
Big-name boss? Or promising coach?
Chief executive Ivan Gazidis says Arsenal had not begun sounding out replacements before Friday and while that is broadly true, they would have been discreetly surveying and discussing their options.
Leading the process will be Gazidis, alongside head of football relations Raul Sanllehi and head of recruitment Sven Mislintat. I suspect Wenger will not have a say.
Arsenal have been linked to the former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, who has admirers at the club. But any move might have been complicated by the fact he fell out with Mislintat when they were together in Germany.
That will likely be irrelevant, though, as it is my understanding he is going to take charge of Paris St-Germain.
