Arsenal stars hold emergency meeting ahead of Hull City game
Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League title evaporated in a blink of an eye following consecutive defeat at the hands of Watford and Chelsea, and with so much unrest surrounding the club at the moment, there is a possibility that the Gunners’ entire campaign could capitulate.
With manager Arsene Wenger coming under pressure, it has now been revealed by the Daily Mirror that the Gunners’ players have taken it upon themselves to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the problems currently plaguing the club and are now hopeful of halting the slide in the coming weeks.
Arsene Wenger planning to axe Petr Cech
Petr Cech has been a very good signing for Arsenal since his arrival from Chelsea last summer but the ex-Czech Republic international has not enjoyed the best of times during the current campaign.
Cech’s uncharacteristically poor displays were exacerbated after he simply gifted Chelsea a goal during Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge last weekend and the Daily Star have recently reported that manager Arsene Wenger is currently considering dropping the 34-year-old ahead of the encounter against Hull City.
Arsenal target Allegri not leaving Juventus
Following Arsenal’s defeat against Chelsea, manager Arsene Wenger has seen himself come under a lot of pressure from the fans and it is now widely expected that the Frenchman will be leaving his post at the Emirates Stadium when the current campaign ends.
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has often been touted as a potential replacement for Wenger but it looks unlikely that the Gunners will be able to land the Italian next summer as club chief Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that the 49-year-old will be staying put at Turin for the foreseeable future.
Marotta told Mediaset, “Aside from the fact we have a contract with Allegri, I think there are still great targets we need to achieve together and our rapport is very good. There is no reason for him to leave Juventus, as there is great mutual admiration and affection.”
