Unbelievable! Wenger trying to convince Arsenal board with this Change

Arsenal released a statement on Thursday backing their under-fire manager and insisting the decision whether he stays or goes will be a mutual one between the board and Wenger.

Wenger and his side welcome Lincoln City to the Emirates this weekend and Arsenal have a crucial run of games coming up in the Premier League.

Arsenal have slipped down to fifth in the table after a 3-1 loss to Liverpool and have their Champions League qualification hopes hanging in the balance with eleven games left to play.

Wenger has decided to tailor his training regimes to the difficult run-in, something that has impressed the board.

Arsenal do not usually deviate from their usual training sessions, but the Mirror claim the subtle change will go a long way to proving Wenger can adapt.

With the backing of the club, Wenger is looking more and more likely to sign a new deal that is set to keep him at Arsenal for a further two years.

Chairman Sir Chips ­Keswick released a statement insisting Arsenal were fully aware of the importance of deciding who should be in charge.

‘We’re fully aware of the attention ­currently focused on the club and understand the debate,’ he said.

‘We respect that fans are entitled to their different ­individual opinions but we will always run this great ­football club with its best long-term ­interests at heart.

‘Arsene has a ­contract until the end of the season. Any decisions will be made by us mutually and communicated at the right time in the right way.’
