Wright reveals that Wenger is set to leave at the end of the season
Following another disappointing Premier League title bid by Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger has seen himself come under intense scrutiny from the media as well as the fans and many are now calling for the veteran Frenchman to stand down at the end of the season.
On the other hand, the Arsenal board wants Wenger to stay put but it looks like the 67-year-old will be bringing the curtain down on his two decade long stay at the Emirates Stadium, if Gunners legend Ian Wright is to be believed.
After meeting with Wenger recently, Wright stated that his ex-boss looked very tired and is of the belief that he will leave the Emirates Stadium once the current campaign is up.
Wright told BBC Radio 5 live, “I was with the boss and if I’m being totally honest. I was with him for a few hours, I genuinely believe but I get the impression looking at him… that’s it.
“He actually mentioned in talking last night that he’s coming to the end. I’ve never heard him say that. He’s a wonderful man. He looks tired.
“But he looks winded, like someone who has whacked him in the stomach. I know someone will ask me: ‘do you think he will go at the end of the season?’ I think he will.”
Arsenal fans react to Wright’s revelation
Arsenal legend Ian Wright dropped a bombshell recently by revealing that Arsene Wenger is considering leaving his post as manager of the Gunners and such a big revelation has certainly caused a major discussion among the club faithful.
A host of Arsenal supporters took to social media website, Twitter, to express their feelings about Wenger’s potential departure and have overwhelmingly stated that it is a change that simply has to be made despite the French manager’s legendary status at the club.
Wenger urges people to lay off Ozil
None of the Arsenal stars covered themselves in glory during their disappointing 3-1 defeat at the hands of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge but one player who was especially poor was superstar Mesut Ozil, who went missing during the encounter.
Following the game, Ozil has come under a lot of criticism but manager Arsene Wenger has jumped at the defence of the attacker by urging people not to play the blame game.
He said, “The team wins and the team loses. When you win sometimes some players are singled out, as they are treated like exceptional players. But when you don’t do well sometimes they just focus on a little more on the team aspect and not try to blame each other.
“The blame culture is part of the perception of people as you say, but what is important is that we show a united front. We have a good opportunity against Hull to show that we are a united, strong unit and that we bounce back.
“When you don’t win you cannot say that all is well. You have to analyse that something is not right. It is our job to find where, and to have a strong, united response."
