Arsene Wenger celebrated his 20th year at the helms of Arsenal’s affairs but there is no telling if this will be his final season with us or not.
There’s been a lot of speculation as to who would eventually succeed him at Arsenal. Names like Eddie Howe, Diego Simeone and Patrick Vieira have appeared on the list of his probable successor.
However, who ever is going to take over the managerial baton would be ready to carry on the same ideology that Wenger has built over the years. Its not going to be an easy one.
While a minority would jump for joy if the boss signed an extension now, most would only welcome it if he wins something. It’s been over a decade since we’ve won the Premier League and, with this squad behind him, it should be possible.
This is what some fans are saying.
“I only want Wenger to leave if we have a proper replacement i.e Diego Simeone or someone of that stature,” one fan said.
“This Eddie Howe talk… I’m not saying he is a bad manager but we are Arsenal Football Club. I’d rather Arsene stay over Eddie f****** Howe anyday.”
And of course, we have those that just want the man away from the club fullstop.
Right now, I’d be happy for him to sign a new contract but I appreciate I’m in the minority with this one.
