Emirates Stadium boss spikes speculation with decidedly unsubtle reference to future at North London club.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger may well be sensing that his 16 year reign as Gunners manager is nearing it’s conclusion. During a riotous press conference ahead of tonight’s Bayern Munich encounter the Frenchman ‘lost it’ on a number of occasions and then delivered a statement that will lead many to speculate that he may be set to leave the Emirates Stadium side in the near future.
Wenger stated, according to the Daily Mirror;
“You will miss me when I’m gone.”
Now whilst it’s true Arsenal fans will miss the boss who led the North London club to countless successes including three Premier League titles and four FA Cup successes and a Champions League final but the Gunners fans are less likely to miss the manager who then oversaw a seven, likely eight, season silverware drought and allowed a procession of top players to leave the club.
Having crashed out of both the FA and Capital One Cups to lower league opposition there is a very real chance that Wenger will be axed and if his Arsenal side fail to overcome runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich and then do not secure a Champions League berth for next term by failing to claim a top four finish then his time at the club may well come to an end.
