Glenn Hoddle has come out to claim that Arsene Wenger will still be in his job at the end of the season, no matter how badly his Arsenal side perform.
The Frenchman has been in charge in North-London for 20 years now, and has led the club to three Premier League titles, including the infamous ‘invincibles’ season of 2004, but not won a title since that year.
You can blame the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City’s billionaire owners for a large part of that, but with the income of Arsenal, they are more than able to spend their fair share, but seemingly refuse to.
Arsene Wenger is not solely blamed for the lack of spending, but has come under increased scrutiny in recent seasons for a lack of results in the Premier League, and was the subject of protests during the season by fans.
Glenn Hoddle has now moved to claim that even if Wenger was to start the campaign as badly as Chelsea did last term, the manager would still be in his job come the end of the term.
‘Arsenal have always stuck by their manager and I don’t see [Wenger being sacked] unless there is an absolute disaster of all disasters. If they started poorly and they’re in the bottom six or seven like Chelsea were last season then I still see Arsene being the manager at the end of the season,’ Hoddle told Metro.co.uk.
‘I don’t think they would panic. I expect Arsenal to do very well – I think they will be at the top end of the league.’
If Wenger keeps our team in the top four this season with our squad, then I will eat my hat, but the transfer window is still open, and there has to be more signings.
Do you agree that Wenger is untouchable?
