We will have to be content with speculation on the subject of Arsene Wenger and how long the Frenchman will continue to be the manager of Arsenal, because however much the fans or the football media might think they know, it could be wrong and the only person that really knows for sure is the man himself.
One of the many bits of speculation going around in the wake of the Sam Allardyce debacle is that the FA will turn to Wenger to rescue them from this unholy mess, according to the Daily Mail, and I can certainly understand why they would. Not only is the prof almost certain to not get caught up in a dodgy sting attempt by the British press, he is one of the most widely respected and dignified figures in football and that is just what the three lions need right now.
But you could say that the previous manager Roy Hodgson also fitted that bill. The problem was that he was not much good at getting the results that the demanding English public wanted, so with Arsenal’s record of success Wenger might well be seen as the ideal man for the job.
He might well be, but the problem for England is that the Frenchman is currently in the middle of something with our club and for the first time in over a decade he is in charge of a squad that looks capable of challenging for the Premier League title.
While this is the case there is no way that Wenger would walk away from Arsenal, so will England wait until the end of the season or look for someone else?
