While Arsenal fans were baying for Arsene Wenger’s head towards the end of last season, it seems that Le Prof was seriously considering turning down the offer of a new contract and leaving the club. In fact right now he could be managing the Moneybags French side Paris ST Germain, who will now have a serious chance of winning the Champions League after acquiring Neymar and Mbappe this summer.
But Wenger decided to stay and run the gauntlet of further protests from Arsenal fans. “Yes it’s true, I considered leaving Arsenal.” Wenger told Telefoot. “I’ve been here for twenty years, I thought of leaving for personal reasons. Continue or quit that was what I was pondering: we struggled last season, so I thought of leaving. This season we started poorly, but we can be champions. Manage a club other than Arsenal? Yes I could, there were contacts with PSG.”
You have to wonder if Wenger now regrets not moving to the richest club in the world, who can afford to buy any and every top player if they want to, but instead he stayed and got off to one of the worst possible starts by losing 2 of his first 3 games.
I bet most fans on JustArsenal wish he had jumped ship!
