Well here we all are, still waiting for some indication about whether Arsenal will be playing under a new manager next season if Arsene Wenger decides to listen to the frustration of the fans and our calls for change or whether he decides to sign a new contract and stay in north London for another year, or two, or four!!!
The Frenchman has intimated that he will make his decision this month or next and we can only guess what he is waiting for. Perhaps a chance to win the FA cup final at Wembley in May to make Arsenal and the man himself the most successful club and coach in the competition’s long and distinguished history.
Whether that would make him stay or go is just as unsure, but most of us would like to know one way or another as soon as possible. There is a theory that an early announcement of his exit would be bad for the team but I do not and Wenger does not appear to either, as a Sky Sports report about his answers to the rumours linking him with the Barcelona job makes clear.
Luis Enrique has already announced his own intention to leave the Spanish La Liga champions at the end of this season, which is the reason Wenger was asked about his desire to take over at the Nou Camp, and the Arsenal boss denied that this would be bad for the players and even suggested it might help.
He said, “No not really, I believe that the players have their own targets, the team targets, I don’t think that can be detrimental, it can be positive as well.”
In that case Arsene, why not follow his lead. If you are going to go surely it would be better if the club knew as soon as possible in order to look for a replacement no?
