The impossible is seemingly on the cards on the Emirates. The sheer thought of another manager other than Arsene Wenger dishing out instructions to the home team on the sidelines at the Emirates seems weird.
The Arsenal board’s decision to begin to access replacements for the Frenchman once the title chances are gone comes as a big surprise.
Reports suggests that the board will commence looking for a replacement once it becomes mathematically certain that the Gunners cannot win the League. The paper further reports that the Arsenal board will not tolerate missing out on the title this season and winning another FA Cup will not be enough to salvage the Frenchman’s situation. It goes on to say that Wenger will however not be sacked as he will be allowed to see out the remainder of his contract which comes to an end next year.
Wenger’s comments earlier this year that a contract was not yet on the table further puts the story into perspective. The board are believed to be fed up with Wenger’s lack of transfer activity as certain members have become concerned with Wenger’s inability to strengthen the squad despite having cash reserves of over £100million.
Wenger who remains the longest serving manager in the Premier League was appointed Arsenal manager way back in September 1996 and has gone on to have an impressive stint with the Gunners having won nine major trophies with the Gunners.
