Whether or not Arsene Wenger stays in his job as manager of Arsenal Football Club beyond the range of his current contract, which is due to expire at the end of the coming season, is probably still the Frenchman’s decision and I reckon that what happens over the next nine months will play a big part in that decision.
The Arsenal board seem to know this and as well as being happy for Wenger to stay in charge they seem to be preparing for his departure. According to a report in the Daily Star, the coming season could play a big part in those preparations because the paper claims that the Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has been identified as the man to take over.
The young English manager was a breath of fresh air and despite a serious lack of resources, big injury problems and the Cherries being in the top flight for the first time in their history, Howe managed to keep them in the Premier League. He plays an attractive brand of football and is full of fresh ideas, just like the prof when he took over 20 years ago.
The main question over the Bournemouth boss is his lack of experience, but if he can have another good season this time around it looks like the job could be his. What do you think Gooners?
