Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has finally conceded that it could be the end of an era for him if results don’t improve drastically. Back in August, the 8-2 demolition at the hands of United was one of Wenger’s most humiliating experiences as manager.
Wenger added: “Stan Kroenke’s words are a beautiful sign of faith but I’m also a realist”.
“When you lose 8-2 to Manchester United you can’t say ‘I’m the best in the world”.
Arsenal currently finds themselves in 10th place and have only recorded three victories. Wenger admitted “I’m in a job where results count and they decide your future.” Clearly his team have not performed this season and Wenger knows that. At times he has looked defeated and emotionally hurt this year especially after seeing key players leave.
Wenger said: “It’s not that I feel in danger, it’s simply I’d like people who love this club to be happy and you have the taste of failing in our mission when an avalanche like that falls on our head. Big disappointments are part of our job. The team is insecure. Every time we concede a goal.”
The exits of Nasri and Fabregas really took its toll on Arsenal, and Wenger believes Nasri moved up North just for the money.
“If you compare what Arsenal have won and what Manchester City have won you don’t go to City to win titles. The players go to City because they pay much better.”
Wenger would feel bitter towards City as he has seen the likes of Adebayor, Toure, Clichy and Nasri all leave his team for City in recent seasons. Could we see the end of Wenger this year, it does look inevitable?
