Arsene Wenger Admits He May Leave Arsenal This Season

Arsene Wenger has admitted that he may leave Arsenal at the end of the campaign.

The admission finally comes after the manager has faced numerous calls from fans to resign from his post following several years of repeated failure. Arsenal have become associated with the top four position so much so that the team has forgot winning the league title. The last success for Arsenal in the Premier league was in the 2003-04 season. Since the competition for the title expanded with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City competing with huge budgets in the transfer market, Arsenal have slipped down the pecking order.

Even though they have qualified for the Champions League consistently for more than 14 seasons, Arsenal have not been able to do much in terms of satisfying the hunger for trophies. This has led to the club being unable to attract the best players in the business. There is a consensus that Wenger may have overgrown his role and that he is no longer good enough to compete with the best in the business.

The rise of young managers like Antonio Conte, Pep Guardiola, and Jurgen Klopp appears to be close to pushing Wenger out of management. Yet, the Frenchman remained defiant in the latest press conference and claimed that he will remain in management next season – even if it is not with Arsenal.

“No matter what happens, I will manage next season, whether it’s here or somewhere else, I am not sure. I want to do extremely well, I feel a big responsibility. You do not stay somewhere for 20 years and walk out of a defeat like that and whistle. But I have the strength and experience to deal with that. We have to give credit to our opponents as well sometimes. We have to focus on real problems. The way we play football, not my future,” said Wenger.
