“Sack Arsene Wenger now” -Thierry Henry sends message to Arsenal’s board

Arsenal are set up in a way that the manager of the club is powerful and immune from harsh decisions of the board.

THIERRY HENRY has told Arsenal to consider Chelsea’s hire-and-fire policy in a message over Arsene Wenger’s future

Antonio Conte is the seventh permanent manager at since Roman Abramovich took control of the west London club in 2003.

The Blues have seen immense success under the Russian billionaire, wining four Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and Europa League.

In that time, have won just the 2003/04 Premier League crown and two FA Cups under the guidance of Arsene Wenger.

Conte is on course to guide Chelsea to another league title as the Blues sit 10 points clear at the top of the table with 11 games to go.

While Wenger is facing the prospect of finishing outside the Champions League qualification spots as Arsenal sit fifth in the standings.

And considering his former manager’s future, Henry admitted sticking with one boss isn’t always the right way.

He told The Sun: “The only people who can answer questions about the club’s [Arsenal] future are the board. Words beat silence in this situation.

“There is no set formula. Chelsea win titles by chopping and changing manager when everyone says consistency is key.

“The only right formula is the winning one. I’ve been in these situations when the confidence goes.

“It is so hard when you are in the middle of it to sort it out. But they must – and quickly.”
