Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has a feeling manager Arsene Wenger will walk away from Arsenal tomorrow. And it will be a disaster if he does.
A decision on the Frenchman’s future is expected to be made tomorrow, and while there are reports he is going to extend his 21 year stay at the club, nothing is guaranteed.
In his column for The Sun, Wright wrote, “I’ve got a nasty feeling Arsene Wenger will walk away from the Arsenal job today – and leave the club totally in the lurch.
“And you would have to say it would serve them right, because there has been absolutely no forward planning for the day when Wenger finally left the Emirates.”
Wright went on to further slate the Arsenal board for their incompetence in the handling of the whole issue.
“The only way the board should have allowed him to run down his contract yet again is if they had private assurances from him that he was staying. Otherwise, it is total incompetence from the board to get to this stage.”
“There has been no one strong enough to tell him: “Look, you’re not going to go on forever. Let’s make sure there’s an easy transition when it’s time for a change.””
“If Wenger goes there will be a mad scramble for a replacement, and until Arsenal find someone there is no one there to take charge of pre-season organising and targeting the players the club need to bring in this summer.”
