Arsenal stars want Arsene Wenger OUT – but do not know who should replace him.
Wenger is under huge pressure at the club after four successive defeats amid a campaign of disappointment.
That includes a 2-1 loss to Swedish minnows Ostersunds at the Emirates and two 3-0 drubbings from Manchester City.
The first of those losses was in the Carabao Cup final, which drew huge criticism from fans and pundits alike.
The north London side are sixth in the Premier League, 13 points behind arch-rivals Tottenham who are fourth.
There are reports that the Frenchman’s position at the club will be reviewed at the end of the season.
Despite signing a two-year extension last summer, there is a feeling that this is the 68-year-old’s last campaign coaching the Gunners.
And the search for his replacement will be heading by chief executive Ivan Gazidis, according to ESPN.
The Arsenal chief has overseen a number of key appointments at the club in recent times.
Sven Mislintat has arrived as head of recruitment from Dortmund and Huss Fahmy has come in as contract negotiator.
But the boardroom are not the only people unhappy with Wenger at the club.
Even the players have turned on their own coach, even though they have no idea who should succeed him.
“A lot of the players don’t want Wenger,” the source said.
“They are not happy with his tactics and the training.
“The players don’t want any particular manager to come in — some speak about Thierry Henry, Carlo Ancelotti and even Rafa Benitez — but they are really frustrated.”
