Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright says the Gunners are at “crisis point” and has urged Arsene Wenger to quit as manager “for his own sanity”.
Wenger’s future was the subject of intense debate last season but he ended up signing a new two-year contract to extend his 21-year reign in charge of the Premier League club.
However, after suffering back-to-back league defeats at Stoke (1-0) and Liverpool (4-0), Wenger’s tenure is again in the spotlight and Wright believes it is time for the 67-year-old Frenchman to say enough is enough.
Wright said on BBC Radio 5 Live: “Where do we start? The amount of things that are going wrong, it does come back to Arsene Wenger’s door. We’re three games in and we’re literally at crisis point.
“Do I think he should go? I would like him to go simply because I do not believe now that Arsene Wenger can motivate those players with everything that’s going on above him.
“And the way the players are performing on the pitch, for him to turn this around….(It’s) for himself, for his own sanity. We are three games in and it’s already an absolute nightmare. Where does he go from here?”
