Breaking – Gazidis Reveals They Have Decided On Wenger’s Departure

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in the final year of his contract and there is no telling of the French tactician will put pen to paper for an extension.

The chief executive of Arsenal, Ivan Gazidis has hinted that the club may be on the look out for a new manager as Wenger may not sign a new contract at the end of the season.

There are heavy speculations if Wenger will take over the managerial position of the Three-Lions.

Arsene Wenger faces criticism from the supporters of Arsenal last season when the form of his players capitulated and the team were dismal in performance for many games.

However. He has insisted that he will continue for as long as he feels he can bring success to north London, but did concede last month that the England job does interest him and that he could see himself in the role at some point in the future.

With the FA currently weighing up whether to appoint Gareth Southgate as the permanent replacement for Sam Allardyce, Gazidis has added fuel to the flames by stressing that Arsenal and Wenger are not bound to each other despite their long association.

“Arsenal is not Arsene Wenger. They’re not one in the same thing,” Gazidis said on Thursday. “He’s been clear and we’ve always been clear, that’s a mutual decision as to how long he’ll continue.

“Both need to be on the same page on that. In a football sense, he has transformed the club.”

His decision to remain at Arsenal will be affected by the performance of his team this season. If Arsenal wins the Premier League, he may decide to take a bow and leave the club on a high.
