All the current Arsenal rumours are full of who will take over when Arsenal Wenger leaves, but what about where Wenger will be in charge next season?
Let Prof has already said that he still wants to play big European matches in the future, and according to the Gunners legend Robert Pires, there is only one club he expects to see his old boss at next season.
Pires told bwin: “I don’t know if it was the right decision for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal this season, but the most important thing is to respect it. It will have been very difficult for the manager to leave Arsenal after 22 years, but I think we will see Arsene sign for a new club this summer. He will have a lot of offers and I’m excited to see him on a new bench for the new season.
“Whether Arsene becomes manager of the France national team depends on how we perform in the World Cup this summer. Didier Deschamps has two more years on his contract, so I think it’s unlikely. I think Arsene Wenger would like to stay in club management rather than move into international football. He’s a warrior who loves to fight for titles every season and coach players every day, so club management suits him better.
“I think there’s every chance that Arsene Wenger will replace Unai Emery as manager of Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The club absolutely loves Arsene Wenger and they have loved him for many years. Arsene is available for the first time in 22 years and PSG would love to have him.
“I think they have offered him the Director of Football job which would be a new role and a new challenge for him, but I’m convinced he would rather be coach of the team instead. He loves football and being a manager too much to change.”
I personally think that there was never any doubt myself that he would be going to PSG. They have probably been trying to persuade him to go ever since the atmosphere turned toxic at Arsenal. He will earn more money and will have whichever players he wants to finally get his dream of winning a Champions League trophy.
At least he won’t have to face Arsenal next season at least!
