Wenger Confirms He Will Manage Next Season But Maybe Not At Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will manage next season whether that be at Arsenal or somewhere else, according to the Evening Standard.
The boss has come under fire following our humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of our Champions League last-16 clash on Wednesday night.
Wenger’s contract expires in June and a growing number of fans are calling for him to call-time on his 21-year reign in north London and walk away from the club in the summer.
There have been reports that a new two-year extension has already been offered but Wenger confirmed that he isn’t planning to make a final decision on his future until March or April.
However, either way, whether he decides to stay at Arsenal or leave the club, Wenger has revealed that he’ll still be in management next season.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference this morning ahead of Monday night’s FA Cup clash with Sutton, Wenger is quoted as saying by the Evening Standard:
“I don’t know. If I said March or April it’s because I didn’t know,”
“No matter what happens I will manage next season. Is it here or somewhere else? That is for sure. I hate defeat, I hate to lose games. I want to do extremely well for this club.”
Arsene went on to point out that even if he does leave this summer, then Arsenal won’t win every game under a new manager next season and he defended his own record in the Champions League.
Personally, I think Wenger firmly believes he still has what it takes to manage at the top level and he probably thinks he’s still the right man for Arsenal.
However, it seems like he’s edging towards leaving and the growing number of fans turning against him will be playing a key role in his decision.
I don’t think there can be any doubt that we need a new start at Arsenal and I just hope the boss announces he’ll be leaving soon so that we can give him the send off he deserves.
