Wenger’s Future Doesn’t Rely on Top Four Finish
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger reveals that Champions League qualification does not create an impact on hi future. The Frenchman’s statement comes amid reports that he would like to stay as Arsenal manager beyond this season.
Wenger has been at the center of every criticism calling for his resignation as the Gunners manager due to the string of poor results recently.Despite that ,the Frenchman has made up his mind on his plans beyond the end of the current campaign and said he will make announcements on his future “soon”.
Wenger’s contract with Arsenal expires at the end of this season in which it will be 21 years for him at the helm of the club’s management.
However, reports on Sunday said that Wenger wants to stay and is set to enter negotiations over a new one-year deal. According to The Mirror, Wenger will have talks with the Arsenal board, though there are no imminent plans of an announcement.
Mystery continued to haunt the Gunners as they lost 3-1 yet again on Saturday in the hands of Westbrom as they dropped to 6th on the log following Manchester United’s win over Middlesbrough.The Manchester bigwigs overtook the gunners climbing to 5th in the standings.
Champions League qualifications for Arsenals hangs on the balance and the manager insists the qualification does not in any way decide on his future at the club.
”My decision will not necessarily be linked with that because I’ve done the top four 20 times. It’s more, it’s not that I take a bigger perspective than that. It’s not the last result that will decide what I will do,”Wenger said.
He added that Arsenal are not as financially dependent on the Champions League as year’s past. However, Anti-Wenger protests continued in the stands at West Brom with some supporters displaying banners calling for Wenger to leave.
The manager had his say on the protests against him and he said: “I don’t know. I don’t want to judge. I’m judged enough and I’m not a judge so I can’t answer.Everybody in life is responsible for his own behavior. I’m responsible for my own behavior. I don’t judge other people,”he said.
