Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal at the end of his contract in 2017

Arsene Wenger, who has come under increased pressure, this season is expected to leave Arsenal at the end of his contract in 2017.

Some fans have become frustrated after a poor run of form that has left Arsenal 13 points off the league leaders Leicester City. They have also been eliminated from the FA Cup as well as the Champions League.

With teams such as Manchester City and Chelsea underperforming and with others such as Liverpool and Manchester United under new management, it was expected that this year would have been Arsenal’s.

But the team has failed to be up to the standard and found themselves distanced in the title challenge and may have to accept a third place finish.

Former striker, Ian Wright believes that Arsene Wenger will stay at Arsenal for the remaining of his contract which is expected to expire in 2017. The question that will be on everyone lips at this moment will be who is going to replace the Frenchman.

With Jose Mourinho expected to be at Manchester United next season, Klopp already at Liverpool and Conte going to Chelsea, there is not too many high caliber managers left on the market that will do a much better job than Arsene Wenger.

There is always the fear that the departure of Arsene Wenger marks a decline in the fortune of the London club. Some fans are wary that Arsenal becomes another Manchester United, who has suffered a lot since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. Everton has also suffered a similar fate with the departure of David Moyse.

However, fans will be hoping that a new manager will help improve the team and turn them again into a genuine title contender and only time will tell whether the team will be better off under new management.
