Pires delivers warning to Wenger
Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal beyond the end of the current campaign remains in doubt at the moment and many can only speculate as to what the Frenchman decides to do when his contract is up.
Arsenal legend Robert Pires is convinced that Wenger will stay on at the Emirates Stadium for at least another season but warned his former boss that he will need to change a lot of things next season in order to prevent the current unrest surrounding the club.
Pires told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, “In my opinion, he will renew his contract, at least for one season. He is motivated and willing.
“Arsene has an offer on the table. He has to sign it. He has the backing of the owner. The fans want to win the title and Arsenal are not doing that well. They are in the FA Cup semifinals.
“He has to continue and if he does, he needs to change many things. That is the most important thing for him and for Arsenal. We will see what happens.”
