I am sure this is not going to come as good news for a lot of Arsenal fans on here, but it appears that insiders at the club are totally convinced that Arsene Wenger has every intention of signing the two-year extension with the Gunners, which is seemingly already sitting on the table just waiting for his signature ‘whenever he chooses’.
Wenger himself has already stated that he will still be managing somewhere next season, even if it isn’t at Arsenal, but can anyone really see him going to another club after 21 years at Highbury and the Emirates? To be honest, the protests against Wenger at the end of the season has become a regular occurence, and history tells us that Le Prof and the Board take absolutely no notice and carry on regardless so we should not be surprised at this news.
The article says that the club insiders know that Wenger has already been involved in preparing the agenda for next summer’s pre-season tour, and is still deeply involved in the contract negotiations with stars like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, amongst others, which they are taking as obvious signs that he will be staying on.
The fact that he also said that he has four years to go before he catches up with the age that Alex Ferguson retired makes me think he will try to emulate that, and maybe even try to create a new record before he retires from the job.
If the contract really is on the table waiting then it is obvious that the Board are never going to try and force him out against his will, so maybe Arsenal fans should just accept that Le Prof will be in charge for many more years to come, whether we like it or not!
So should we just get behind him and the team and cheer them on to FA Cup glory?
