Arsene Wenger pondering over Arsenal exit
Reports of Arsene Wenger’s exit from Arsenal are causing a lot of unrest in England. The Frenchman has declared that the present season might be his last season with Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will assess his Arsenal future at the end of the season. The Emirates boss has led the Gunners to one of the worst starts to a season. Arsenal has managed to acquire only 21 points from 15 games under his watch.
This means Arsenal need a mighty comeback in order to secure a Champions League spot. Arsenal is placed 10th on the Premier League table, just a point below Stoke City and two points about Liverpool.
Arsenal slipped to another shocking defeat at home on Saturday against Swansea City. Two late goals from Michu were enough force Arsene Wenger into questioning his future at the London outfit.
Arsene Wenger is under increasing pressure due to consecutive disappointing results. Arsenal has managed to win only one of their last six Premier League encounters. The defeat to Swansea City was their fourth defeat of the season.
There were a lot of unhappy fans at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday. The unhappy Gunners made their voices heard with boos and chants against Arsene Wenger’s dismissive campaign. The growing discontent among Arsenal ranks was also portrayed by a protest from the ‘Black Scarf Movement’.
Arsene Wenger, who has been at the helm since 1996, is Arsenal’s longest serving manager. He is also the only man to have led a Premier League campaign without a single defeat with his legendary team of ‘The Invincibles’.
“Not at all,” Arsene Wenger replied when he was asked if Arsenal’s poor form will force him to quit straightaway. “You make your assessment at the end of the season. I know we've got unrest everywhere. It's a good opportunity to stick together and show we're a strong club.”
Arsene Wenger admitted it hurts to see his side suffer in the mid-table. The 63-year-old manager told reporters that his men needed to get back their ‘quality’ of game in order to inspire a comeback.
“Of course. But I'm not as worried about the places. We need to get the quality of our game back,” Arsene Wenger said.
Arsene Wenger has helped Arsenal to three Premier League title and four FA Cup trophies. However, Arsenal have been unable to place any silverware in their trophy cabinet since 2005.
