Arsene Wenger Considering Stepping Down as Arsenal Manager
Reports from England says, Arsene Wenger is said to be considering walking away from Arsenal at the end of the season if the Gunners go trophy-less.
The club’s 2-1 FA Cup quarter final defeat to Watford on Sunday stunned fans, who had been hoping for at least the consolation of some silverware to dampen the disappointment of a stuttering league campaign.
The Daily Mail report that the level of anger shown by fans over the last couple of weeks has shaken Wenger, with at least one large banner calling for his resignation on display at the KC Stadium when Arsenal travelled to Hull for an FA Cup replay last week.
Although, Stan Kroenke has been said to have offered the Frenchman his full backing despite a substantial recent dip in form, inside sources say the American is reportedly drawing up a succession plan in case of Wenger’s shock resignation.
The 66-year-old’s contract runs until the end of next season and club chiefs expect him to continue at the helm of the club until at least the end of that deal, but the unrest around the club at what is perceived to be a wasted chance to win the Premier League could see him pull the cord sooner.
