The Gunners legend, Ian Wright, claimed that Arsene Wenger told him that his time as Arsenal’s manager is almost over.
Calls for the Frenchman to depart the north London side following two decades in charge have increased from supporters over the past week following back-to-back defeats which has seen hopes of winning the Premier League title all but go up in smoke.
Wenger has been Arsenal manager since 1996 October, winning the last of his three premier league titles in 2014.
Mr. Wenger’s contract with Arsenal will expire at the end of the season at 67 years.
“I get the impression that that’s it. He looks tired. You just feel that he looks winded. I have a feeling that he will go at the end of the season,” said the ex- Arsenal striker, Ian Wright.
In this season, Arsenal had a high hope of winning the championship, though their hope was blown by Chelsea after beating Arsenal 3-1 in the last Friday’s match. Chelsea is now a head of Arsenal with 12 points behind the Blues.
Wright, the ex-striker confirmed that he lastly spoke to Wenger on Thursday night.
“Actually, he mentioned that he is coming to the end. I have never heard him saying that before,” said Ian Wright, a 53 years old player.
“He has been let down by the players badly, and there will be a lot of charges if he does not leave at the end of the season. He has been so faithful to his team though it has been misplaced.”
In the past days at Stamford Bridge, some of the Arsenal funs had called for Mr. Wenger to leave the team, with one holding up a poster with writings reading, “Enough is enough.”
