Sorry Real, Wenger Will Stay At Arsenal! by AT
If reports from the Spanish press are to be believed, it seems as though Real Madrid are interested in replacing manager Rafa Benitez with the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who has enjoyed a splendid calendar year at the Emirates.
According to Marca, a publication which does not get many wrong when it comes to news about Real Madrid, club president Florentino Perez is keen on bringing the Frenchman to the Santiago Bernabeau with a view to instill some stability at the club. With the season currently at the halfway point, it is understood that the La Liga side will make an approach in the summer.
Personally, I think there is a fair amount of credibility in this story. After having tiny spells of success under Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti prior to Rafa’s disappointing reign at the helm so far, it seems as though Real are looking for a manager who will stay for the long-term and bring stability to the club. While immediate success remains a priority, it is also understood that the Spanish giants are looking at building a platform for the future, and who better to take charge of such a job than Arsene Wenger?
But despite the obvious interest from Real Madrid, I firmly believe that Le Prof will stay. Now although he’s brought the team through the times of financial restrictions, I think his ultimate goal is to once again make Arsenal one of the biggest forces in Europe. The Frenchman probably won’t admit it, but he’s probably eyeing a Champions League triumph before he decides to leave the Emirates.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, Arsene Wenger will not leave Arsenal with the job half done. Irrespective of whether we win the Premier League title this season, there is still some way to go in making Arsenal a force in Europe, and I believe that Wenger will stick around for the rest of the journey.
