Three reasons Wenger needs to go for the good of Arsenal
It was a case of same old, same old for Arsene Wenger last night as the Gunners went down 5-1 losers to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena to leave their Champions League dreams in tatters. Prior to the continental kicking, the London club had lost two of their last three league matches – slipping to defeats against Watford and Chelsea – which had increased the pressure on Wenger to the point that not even a victory over Hull last weekend eased calls for this to be his last season at the club.
And he confirmed doubters’ views once again in Munich with yet another bad outing in Europe. Granted, the Bavarians were never going to be straightforward opponents to get past, but the manner of the loss was galling, with the Premier League side out-fought and out-classed across the 90 minutes.
The truth is Arsene Wenger has to take the blame for this disappointment and should finally be relieved of his duties when his contract expires at the end of the season at the latest.
