Hill-Wood Dismisses Wenger ‘Nonsense’ & Confirms He Has Money To Spend
Arsenal’s long-serving chairman Peter Hill-Wood has dismissed reports suggesting manager Arsene Wenger is set to leave the Emirates at the end of the season.
Arsenal’s long-serving chairman Peter Hill-Wood has dismissed reports suggesting boss Arsene Wenger is set to leave the Emirates this summer, according to the Daily Star.
The Telegraph were one of several media outlets who were reporting on Tuesday that Paris Saint-Germain were confident they had struck a deal that would see Wenger leave the Gunners at the end of the season, after he apparently agreed a £10m-a-year deal to take over at the French giants.
However, Hill-Wood has hit back at these reports, claiming they are ‘complete nonsense’:
“I think this is complete nonsense – in fact, I know it is complete nonsense.” Hill-Wood told the Star
Wenger has one year left on his current deal and has insisted he will honour his contract till the end. The boss has shown loyalty throughout his 17 years in north London and the chairman doesn’t think that’s about to change.
“He is not about to change that.” Hill-Wood said after being asked about Wenger seeing out his contracts
Hill-Wood also dismissed reports that suggested Wenger had a clause in his contract that would allow him to walk away this summer. He continued:
“That is news to me and I would certainly know if there was one,”
“He is happy as Larry and the whole thing is complete rubbish.”
As I said yesterday, I really can’t see Wenger jumping ship this summer and it seems Hill-Wood feels the same way. Arsene has a big summer ahead of him and with his chairman also confirming to the Star that there will be plenty of money available for transfers this summer after revealing cash reserves of £123.3m back in February, this could be the year we finally see the boss splash the cash and bring in a couple of world class players.
What do you think, will Wenger leave this summer? Do you want him to go? Get involved in the comments section below.
