It Looks Like Arsene Wenger Will Stay On As Arsenal Manager

Regolare Commento Stampare

It's now understood that Wenger has no plans to quit and that the Arsenal board are happy for him to stay on, having already offered him an improved contract earlier in the year.

The Gunners dropped to sixth place in the Premier League with a disappointing 3-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, placing even more pressure on the French manager.

"I'll be surprised if he goes", Pulis told reporters, as revealed in yesterday's newspapers.

"I watch the game, I do not watch the stands during the game", Wenger said.

But the club have denied a claim on Monday that they have approached Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel as a possible Wenger replacement. I've said this before about Arsenal.

On the plus side, the Gunners have a decent Premier League record against today's opponents losing just one of the last 12 meetings and winning nine. Very soon. You will see.

Arsenal also have league games against both Manchester clubs and Tottenham before the end of the season, which could salvage some pride, but realistically only a title or Champions League challenge could have won over supporters this season. I think he's waiting for a big win to turn around and announce he's staying. 'It's not the last result that will decide what I will do.

Arsenal are in real danger of finishing outside of the top four for the first time since Wenger was appointed in 1996 and it looks increasingly likely that north London rivals Tottenham will finish above them. I'm judged enough and I'm not a judge so I can't answer. "No one wants to see Arsenal play like that, especially me". As long as I am at the club, whether that is for two more years, 10 more years or four more months, that will not be different.

That was followed by another plane with a pro-Wenger banner, but the Frenchman still suffered the ignominy of travelling fans singing "you don't know what you're doing" near the end of the game.
