Paul Merson has claimed that Arsene Wenger cannot keep his Arsenal job if he loses the upcoming match against Hull City.
The Gunners have lost their last two matches back-to-back, leaving Arsenal a whopping 12 points behind league leaders Chelsea, and pressure is piling on Arsene as a result.
The #WengerOut brigade is getting louder again, as we look destined for another season without mounting a serious challenge on the Premier League title, and now Merson has claimed that he cant see how the manager can keep his job if they went onto lose this weekend, although he expects a dominant win.
He said: ‘This is typical Arsenal. They will win 3-0, everything will be great again and Arsene Wenger will be the best manager in the world.
‘The pressure is on, though, as if they lose this game I don’t see how he can keep his job.
‘It would be that toxic that I couldn’t see him staying.
‘Hull are doing very well but Arsenal tend to beat these teams.’
It’s unclear whether Paul means that Wenger would leave prior to the end of his contract however, and I can’t personally imagine somebody coming in before the summer.
If reports are to be believed Massimiliano Allegri is either agreed, or considering the job in the future, but will most definitely be seeing out his season with Juventus also.
Do you think Arsene could seriously leave before his contract was up? Does Merson ever open his mouth without saying something outrageous about Arsenal?
