Roy Keane thinks Diego Simeone is the perfect candidate to replace Arsene Wenger at the end of the season.
The Frenchman will leave Arsenal in the summer after 22 years at the helm of the north London club.
A search for his successor is already underway with a whole host of names such as Carlo Ancelotti and Luis Enrique being touted.
But after their dismissal at the hands of Atletico Madrid in the Europa League semi-finals, the former Man United skipper thinks the ideal choice was already under their noses on Thursday night.
"[Diego Simeone] is great to watch. He shows passion, desire and he has done a great job there…Imagine if he was manager of Arsenal. They wouldn’t be giving goals away like they were tonight," said Keane on ITV’s coverage of the game.
"They need to get the right manager in, they need funds, new players and new characters."
The Irishman was unimpressed by what he saw from the Gunners at the Wanda Metropolitano and said Wenger’s side ‘got what they deserved’.
"I think the players deserve what they got and that is nothing," he said.
"The Arsenal players lacked belief. I have been critical of Arsenal over the last few years for a lack of leaders and characters, but tonight it hit home that they have a real lack of quality.
"Arsenal get into good positions and they have some good players, but their players think they are going to get four or five touches in the box…The good positions they got themselves in and they have one shot on target all night?"
"They are so far behind Man City its untrue. Way behind United, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea. Some tough days ahead at Arsenal."
