As reported by The Daily Mirror, Arsene Wenger has been given a deadline to decide whether his time at Arsenal will be over come the end of the season or not.
Wenger has been manager of Arsenal for over 20 years but after another particularly poor season and some humiliating defeats, his time at the club could be coming to an end.
The Mirror report that Arsenal chiefs have given the Frenchman until April 2nd to decide whether or not he will sign a new contract at the club or not.
That means he’ll have the space and time the international break provides to have a serious think about his future and whether his presence is still the best thing for the Gunners.
Wenger has so far refused to commit to the club, saying publicly that he’ll decide upon his future at the end of the season.
As quoted by The Mirror, he said:
I have shown in my life that I try to serve this club with total commitment and I will do that as long as I am here. How long? I don’t know. I have shown a lot of loyalty and my preference is here. I focus on my job and let others judge my performances.
It seems though than he will ultimately have to be his own critic with the report suggesting that the Arsenal hierarchy feel he should call his own time on the club instead of facing the indignity of being sacked.
Are we seeing the final months of Wenger’s Premier League career?
