Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed to stay at the club for one more season.
That’s according to Neil Fissler of the Sunday Express, who reported that the Gunners hierarchy and the Frenchman have reached a compromise over his future. Wenger’s position at the club has been the subject of much debate recently, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Fissler noted that while a two-year contract was on the table for Wenger, that has since been renegotiated.
After Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion, the Arsenal manager revealed he had made his mind up whether to stay or go. “I know what I will do, so you will know very soon,” he said, per Fissler. “Today I do not worry about that. I watched the game. I do not watch the stands.”
While reports have emerged suggesting Wenger is set to stick around, Bleacher Report’s James McNicholas felt as though these quotes may signal the end for the Arsenal boss:
Plenty of Arsenal supporters believe the club is ready for a change of leadership. As the Gunners were bullied in all-too-familiar fashion against West Brom on Saturday, banners were dotted around the away section of the stadium calling for Wenger to go.
