Zinedine Zidane And Arsene Wenger Should Switch Jobs

Real Madrid and Arsenal are both having terrible (for them) seasons. Real Madrid are in fourth place in La Liga, which is unacceptable for a club that big. Arsenal are in sixth in the Premier League, and in danger of falling out of the Champions League race altogether. Fortunately, there is a solution that fits both clubs, that would benefit each right now and in the long-term: Arsena Wenger and Zinedine Zidane should switch clubs.

You think this is a joke but it's not.

Arsene Wenger and Zinedine Zidane should switch clubs.

Arsene Wenger Sits In Press Box For Boring Draw

Arsenal and Chelsea played to a 0-0 draw in the Carabao Cup semifinals Wednesday (marking the FOURTH time the two sides have drawn this season), and it was DEFINITELY a soccer game, that's for sure. Arsene Wenger, serving the second match of his touchline ban, sat in the press box. Hopefully that gave him lots of time to answer questions about Alexis Sanchez and Manchester City.

Let's take a look at the highlights:

Leverkusen Coach Heiko Herrlich Hit With $14K Fine For Awful Sideline Dive

Bayer Leverkusen manager Heiko Herrlich has been hit with a fine approaching $14,500 after taking a comedy tumble during his side’s DFB-Pokal match against Borussia Monchengladbach on December 20. Bayer would win the game 1-0, but Herrlich apologized after the match for his hysterics following Denis Zakaria’s near-impingement on his personal space.

“That was stupid,” said Herrlich. “I’d like to apologize.”

CRISIS Team Meeting Makes Zidane 90 Minutes Late For News Conference

Are Real Madrid in CRISIS? Should they purchase Mohamed Salah, Mauro Icardi and Harry Kane tomorrow, forming the attacking trifecta SIK? In turn, should they offer BBC + Keylor Navas to Manchester United in exchange for David de Gea? After losing three of their opening 17 La Liga matches, these are the questions facing the back-to-back European champions and manager Zinedine Zidane.

Remarkable Canada Soccer Shakeup Sees Women’s Coach Jettisoned Into Men’s Role

Less than a year after being hired by the Canadian Soccer Association, Ecuadorian manager Octavio Zambrano has been replaced by the hugely successful coach of the Canadian women’s team, 42-year-old Englishman John Herdman. Former Herdman assistant Kenneth Heiner-Møller will now take charge of the side ranked fifth in the world with the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup just 17 months away.

Arsene Wenger No Longer Has The FA Cup To Fall Back On

Arsene Wenger was probably going to be fired after failing to qualify for the Champions League with Arsenal last season. However, Arsenal won the FA Cup, and Wenger held on to his job.

He is still holding on to it, but his position has become a little more precarious after Arsenal was bounced, 4-2, from Wenger's favorite competition (he has won seven times with Arsenal) by Nottingham Forest and in particular American defender Eric Lichaj.

Mourinho-Conte Feud Reaches Remarkably Personal Levels With No End In Sight

With Manchester City holding an unassailable 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League table, the managerial mind games in the race for second place began in earnest on Thursday with Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho outlining how his work sets up future managers for success and how he refuses to “behave as a clown on the touchline,” both quips being viewed as digs at Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.

We'd Be Fine If Every Game Arsenal Played Was A Wildly-Entertaining Draw

Where to begin with this game? We'll start with Alvaro Morata. If Chelsea had someone else playing striker, they probably would have won this game running away. But, they did have Alvaro Morata, and he missed three clear chances. So it goes.

You know who didn't miss, though? Jack Wilshere! Welcome back, Jack!

You know who else doesn't miss? Hector Bellerin, who nailed Eden Hazard squarely in the foot with his foot to set this up:
