Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has made a decision on his future and, after watching his side crash 3-1 at West Bromwich Albion, he has vowed to make it public ‘very soon’.
Wenger gave no indication whether he is staying or going, but the Frenchman is under growing pressure with Arsenal’s season in danger of collapsing after a sixth defeat in nine games.
Four league defeats in five is their worst run since April 1995 and there is now a huge question mark over whether the Gunners can finish in the top four, something they have achieved in each of Wenger’s 20 years at the club.
A number of fans displayed ‘Wenger Out’ banners and chanted ‘You don’t know what you’re doing’ when Alexis Sanchez was substituted, though Wenger later revealed he was injured. And there was a farcical situation of two planes trailing banners, one demanding Wenger leave and the other in support of him.
Arsenal will slip to sixth if Manchester United win on Sunday at Middlesbrough, with Wenger admitting they face a battle to qualify for the Champions League.
‘Don’t worry, I know what I will do in my future. You will soon know. Very soon. You will see. Today, I don’t necessarily worry about that. I know what I do,’ said Wenger.
