Arsene Wenger has already given us a clear indication that the decision about whether he will stay on as the manager of Arsenal has been made and that we should all know pretty soon what that decision is. So far, though, we can only speculate and there have been some very conflicting reports in the football media.
If you are looking for some kind of hint about the future of the Frenchman, then I think you could do a lot worse than look at the report in The Mirror this weekend regarding Mesut Ozil, because if it is true that the German international is not going to move on in the summer as many people expect, I think it means that he already knows that Wenger is still going to be his boss.
Ozil told the German press, “I am contracted until 2018 and I feel very comfortable.
“We’ll talk soon and then make a decision.”
To be honest I am not sure what to make of this news. On one hand I am happy that Arsenal are not going to lose one of our best players, and when he is on his game Ozil can be unplayable and the heartbeat of our team. On the other hand I cannot help but feel that our playmaker is going through the motions and taking the easy option because he seems to have it very easy under Wenger who seems unwilling to push him or even criticise his poor performances.
Do you think this news from Ozil tells us that Wenger is going to have at least one more season at Arsenal? If so, what do you think of it?
