Arsene Wenger has remained coy over his future as the manager of Arsenal, with claims that he is focused on winning the Europa League in order to return the Gunner to the Holy grail of football (Champions League), according to report.
Giantsfootballnews reported earlier that the brass of Arsenal have decided to relieve Wenger of his position as the manager of the club, with a replacement yet to be decided. Despite having a year left on his current contract, it appears as though the French tactician will not be at the helms of Arsenal next season.
Since Wenger took charge of Arsenal in 1996, this is about his worst spell at the club, and the fans have asked that he be sacked. Arsenal are currently 13 points adrift Tottenham Hotspur in 4th position, with their only chance of qualifying for the Champions League hinged on their winning the Europa League.
Whether Wenger qualifies the Gunners for the Champions League or not, he has displayed gross incompetence and methinks he has has to make way for another person to take charge.
Wenger was asked he will continue to be in charge of Arsenal for next season and he said:
“Look, my personal situation is not so much my worry at the moment
“My worry is to transform a season with many disappointments away from home into success and that’s what matters to me.
“As I said the other night, my future is in front of me every time I make a half turn. That’s not my biggest priority.”
While there are growing concerns that Arsene Wenger has the final stay over his stay at Arsenal, he has also refused to confirm that. He was further asked if it will be his decision to quit the club or he be fired and re replied as thus:
“That doesn’t really matter.
“As I told you, my main worry is Arsenal and I think if you have to give me some credit, if you look back at my career, you would have to accept that my priority was always the interest of Arsenal.”
Several coaches have been linked with a move to Arsenal including Patrick Vieira, Luis Enrique, Mikel Arteta, Thomas Tuchel etc but we wait to see who takes over.
