Arsene Wenger has been speaking to Bein Sports about the constant speculation about whether he is going to be replaced as Arsenal manager in the near future, and he thinks he is being targeted because of his age and length of time but he also agrees that he will judged on the results, which admittedly haven’t been too good this season. In fact right now the betting on Thomas Tuchel replacing Wenger is now down to Even Money, and if you use this Bet365 Bonus Code you can even get 100 GBP to put the bet on. If you read my previous report on Tuchel that seems like a great bet!
“Look, when you age, you focus on doing well for your club and ignore all the rest,” Wenger was quoted as saying. “The older you get, the more it becomes age discrimination. I accept if the results are not good enough then you have to take the consequences.
“But overall that perpetual thing – how long you been at a club, how old you are, I find that a bit difficult to take. But all the rest I have to accept because I am in a public job and have to make results and I accept I will be judged on results.”
He also hopes that whatever happens at the end of this season, the fans will appreciate what he has achieved in the last 22 years working to take Arsenal forward. “I am maybe naive enough to believe that with the time going on, with perspective and context what will stand out is what I have done for my club,” he said, “and not so much the result of the last game or how much I will be applauded when I stop one day.”
So I wonder if the result of Arsenal’s season is us winning the Europa League, will that be enough for him to remain for one last season? And what happens if we end up with nothing at all?
