Arsene Wenger is nearing his end of days at Arsenal as the players and the board turn against him.
The Frenchman is facing a desperate battle to win back their confidence and it looks increasingly likely he will leave the Emirates this summer.
It was revealed earlier this week that Wenger ’s position will be reviewed at the end of the season and the club held a board meeting on Monday with growing doubts among the hierarchy.
Wenger, 68, knows he is under massive pressure to get into the Champions League and winning the Europa League looks his only route.
But he claims to be “amazed” that his position should even be questioned, reports the Mirror .
He refused to answer whether his job depended on qualifying for the Champions League, saying: “I don’t want to come out always on that, I have answered that already. Yes, I answered that question. Our target is to qualify for the top four, of course.
“I have been here for 21 years, I turned the whole world down to respect my contracts. So I am still amazed that I still have to answer these types of questions.
“My job is to protect the players and to get them to focus on the next performance. I am responsible.
“I get the plaudits when it goes well, so I have to take the bad when it doesn’t go well. It’s part of the job.”
