Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted that even he and his fellow team-mates have no knowledge about the future of manager Arsene Wenger.
The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season, and Wenger told us before the international break that an announcement would be revealed ‘soon. It has since been an anxious three weeks, and we are still waiting!
Aaron Ramsey has now admitted that even he has no idea whether his boss will be staying on beyond his current deal.
He said: “The manager hasn’t said anything about it. He’s our manager and we’re delighted to play for him.
“He’s been brilliant for us so hopefully we can repay him by finishing off this season strongly and hopefully win something for him.
“As players, we haven’t really discussed it, we just want to go out there and try to win the game so we’re focused and trying to work hard throughout the week to put it right at the weekend.
“We’re professional footballers so we have to go out there and perform as best we can and try and get the results that we want.
“There’s a lot of things going on at the moment but we have to turn a blind eye to that and concentrate on what we are here to do.”
All of the players are continuing to back the manager, and it is pleasing to see the team rallying around each other, and hopefully this sort of attitude can give us the desire to go out and end the season well.
It’s no secret that we need an impressive run of wins to assure ourselves of Champions League football next year, and it may even be possible that Arsene Wenger could warrant a top four finish as the means to leave on a high.
Could Wenger be unsure of his own decision? Could a top four finish allow Wenger to leave happy?
