Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal is the talking point of the Premier League at present, with so much negativity surrounding the club, he may be forced to stay.
The Gunners have struggled this season and are currently on course to miss out on a place in the Champions League for next season.
Many fans are finally at their wits end with the direction our beloved club is headed in, and it is hard to argue any of those opinions currently, but the reality for me is that he simply wont allow himself to leave the club in it’s sorry state, not by choice.
The board are the only people who can decide his time as boss is up, with the Frenchman in the belief that he has built the club to get to it’s current position, and will not choose to leave with it’s key men leaving, and without any Champions League football.
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil look more and more certain to quit our side, with the Chilean showing his unhappiness on the pitch, and the German suspectly missing from action over the recent outings, with the pair both entering the final year of their deals in just over a year.
Some reports are suggesting that a one-year deal is to be announced, which will no doubt anger fans, and as much as I don’t think they are guessing, it makes sense.
Wenger will want to leave on a high, but it will be more important to him to leave the club in a strong position, and that is far from what we feel like currently.
Our team needs leadership and fight added to its ranks, as well as some much-needed experience. Our players have shown these to be our weaknesses for much of the campaign, and has to be addressed by whoever is in charge next season.
Would Wenger give in to pressure and allow himself to go whilst the club is in disarray? Could the board tell him to leave?
