Why Wenger is still managing Arsenal by DN
The question of whether Arsenal are better off with Arsene Wenger as the manager has been a matter of some debate and discussion among Arsenal fans for some time now and I am sure that it will continue to be so for at least another year or so.
After the long serving Frenchman managed to lead the Gunners to an FA cup final last season however, there were not too many dissenting voices heard when Wenger signed a three year extension to his contract, as we all thought that after last season and a decent bit of transfer business, we would really be able to push on and challenge for the coveted Premier League crown this season.
As we know, that has not really happened and we are left fighting for a top four spot again, but I reckon that Wenger is just as disappointed as the rest of us about the way things have gone. In fact, I think that the boss was fully focused for the Gunners to win it this year.
I actually think that he was planning to do a Fergie and win the title one more time and then step down. That is why he was allowed to spend the big money on Ozil and then Alexis, just as Fergie took van Persie to United to ensure the title.
Unfortunately for Wenger and the Arsenal fans who want rid of him, things did not work out according to plan. But I blame that on the shocking injury situation and if we can finish this season strongly, I think that Wenger will go all out to make sure he has the squad to become champions of England again next season. That could mean more big money spent in the transfer market this summer.
I don’t think that Wenger really wants to see out the three years of his current deal. I think he wants to end it on a high note though, so that probably means at least one more season with the Prof. Unless we win the Champions League that is…..
