Ex-Arsenal midfielder Stewart Robson believes that Arsenal should sack Arsene Wenger and replace him with Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri.
Wenger has come under pressure like never before recently, with Arsenal seven points off the top four in 6th place after losing five out of their last eight league games.
The North London side were also knocked out of the last-16 of the Champions League for the seventh season in a row after a humiliating 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich.
Calls have been growing amongst Arsenal fans for Wenger to leave, with some fans protesting at games by unveiling banners asking Wenger to step down as manager.

Stewart has said he has long pined for Wenger to leave Arsenal, and thinks Antonio Conte should have been hired prior to him taking over at Chelsea. He told talkSPORT (via Football ITALIA): "
"There’s an article dated 14 April 2008 of me saying exactly that and my views have not changed.
“I said they should go and get Antonio Conte, because I’d seen all the Juventus games and I said he was the best coach in Europe, but everyone laughed and said: ‘No, he can’t come from Juventus to Arsenal’."
With Conte now at Chelsea and on the brink of leading them to Premier League title in his first season in charge, Robson think that another man from Juventus should take the top job at Arsenal. He added: "
"He’s done a really good job after Conte and I think he’d suit Arsenal well."
