"We didn't see it coming", midfielder Jack Wilshere said.
Among the early contenders to succeed Wenger are two Germans: Thomas Tuchel, who left Borussia Dortmund past year, and Germany coach Joachim Loew.
As The Guardian notes, Tuchel is expected to become the next manager at Paris Saint-Germain, but there is always a chance until that becomes official.

"He was fine when we were talking about how the kids were doing, stuff like that", Wright told the BBC.
