Having been a firm fixture at Arsenal for more than twenty years, Arsene Wenger, will spend the season contemplating his next move. Sources state, that there is a new contract available for the long serving manager, however, whether or not he decides to sign on for another season remains unknown.
Given the lack of success at the club in recent history, it is somewhat bemusing that Wenger has been offered a new contract. Especially after the way they played against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Suffering a 5-1 loss in Germany, has resulted in the high probability of the premiership team being knocked out of the competition at the last 16. This will be the seventh year in a row that they haven’t made it through this stage.
Having gone a whole nine years without any silverware, things did look as though they could be on the up as the gunners proved that they still had what it takes to lift a trophy in the 2014 FA Cup final. Wenger’s squad beat Hull City, in an entertaining match that saw Arsenal see off the opposition with a 3-2 victory. The consecutive year Arsene Wenger’s tactics paid off again, as the London based club held on the FA Cup. They beat Aston Villa at Wembley in 2015 with a very respectable score of 4-0.
Following on from this success, reports suggested that players at the club, were certain things would continue to improve. However, nothing more has come to fruition and fans are beginning to become frustrated with poor results.
Wenger’s management is consistent, proven by the fact that the team have managed to make it through to the knock out stages of the Champions League qualifications for 14 years in a row. Consistency isn’t enough though, everyone associated with the club continues to seek the same level of success seen in 2014 and 2015.
The absence of titles and silverware has resulted in those associated with Arsenal to begin speaking their minds. Former player Ian Wright, stated that he believed that the manager’s time at the club was drawing to a close.
Fans should expect a definite decision to be made by the Frenchman at the end of this season. This is nothing unusual, as the sixty seven year old usually likes to make an informed decision, based on the events of the closing season.
