Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal continues to be surrounded in speculation, with fans, former players and large sections of the media widely criticising the long-serving Frenchman.
The Gunners have seen their season fall apart in the last month, with any outside hopes of Premier League success dashed by back-to-back defeats against Watford and Chelsea, whilst they suffered further embarrassment in the Champions League- suffering a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich.
Through all that disappointment though, Wenger has remained consistent to achieve regular Champions League spots that many other clubs couldn’t even dream of- and that makes it interesting to hear the views of fans from the other 19 clubs in the league as to what they think should happen with Wenger’s future.
Squawka did exactly that and, perhaps surprisingly, only four fans said the Gunners should stick with Wenger- with the clubs in question being Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth.
Perhaps the most damning assessment of Wenger comes from Chelsea fan Joe Tweeds, who said:
“I used to worry about playing Arsenal in the early 2000s. The team that came to Stamford Bridge at the start of February was the worst Arsenal side I have ever seen and I include the team that got smashed 6-0. Gutless, leaderless and showing absolutely no desire for the badge.”
“The attitude and desire should be there, but equally it needs to come from the manager. Chelsea are a reflection of Conte – are Arsenal now a reflection of Wenger?”
With so many unbiased views calling for Wenger to go, surely Arsenal have to twist this summer and move on for the greater good.
