Some Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern won’t be pleased with the latest news to emerge during the international break, as it seems there will be no change in the club’s management hierarchy.
At the turn of the year, Arsenal were firmly established as the favourites to land the Premier League title, which would be their first since 2004, and their campaign for a third-successive FA Cup looked promising.
However, a run of poor league results saw Arsenal slip to third in the table, 11 points behind Leicester City with eight fixtures left for the Gunners to play, and the nail in the coffin of a poor season was a surprise FA Cup exit at the hands of Watford.
With Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all looking set for new managers for the next season, whilst Liverpool also boast Jurgen Klopp, many have questioned whether Wenger at Arsenal is the right call amidst so much competition.
However Wenger, who’s current contract expires in 2017, has stated he has no doubt he’ll remain in north London for next season.
“I have my conscience. What is most important is I give my best every day for the club I love. If I can share that love with the supporters, even better, but at the end of the day, I want to make sure that I give my best.”
“I have no doubt (that I will be here next season). I am committed, when I do something, I do it 100 percent. I’m always committed to giving my best for as long as I am at the club.”
Time will tell whether this is a good decision from Arsenal but given their cataclysmic decline this term, it’s difficult to see how next year could be any better.
Gooners, would sticking with Wenger be the wrong call to make? Let us know in the comments below!
