Indeed. Away from the emotion of the football field and his famous 'blind spots' away from the field he's been nothing but classy off it.
As for who should replace him, tough one. There's not many out there who could handle the size and expectations of that club, not too dissimilar to what we've experienced and what Man Utd are arguably going through at the moment. To be honest the only name that pops up who I think would be great for them is Max Allegri. Would he leave Juventus though?
The talk surrounding Brendan? I can't see it. I think a good couple years more at Celtic would do the world of good for him and he's still got a lot to prove in terms of organising defences and, as Jürgen has now shown with us, the fitness levels required to compete at the level Arsenal want to compete at. On the coaching side and the attacking side Brendan is absolutely superb and would suit Arsenal's ethos of developing youngsters and playing attractive football. But because he hasn't proved his managerial side in terms of defence and fitness (or at least relative to the elite managers) I can't see them going for him.
