Legendary defender, Tony Adams believes Arsene Wenger should have his statue erected at the Emirates whenever he decides to leave.
Speaking to Islington Gazette, Adams, part of the team who won Wenger’s first Premier League title also believes Wenger should have walked after winning the FA Cup in May. Instead of that, Wenger signed a new 2-year deal at the club – a move which Adams believe will ‘end in tears.’
“Arsene should have gone in May,” he said.
“He’s such a great guy. He’s said ‘retirement is death’
“But you don’t have to retire do you? He’ll have a place at Arsenal forever – he’s the greatest Arsenal manager – and deserves respect.
“You could say if he wants another two years give him another two years – but my personal opinion is that he should have gone after beating Chelsea.
“He should have said ‘thanks very much I’ve done unbelievably for this football club’ – and they would have put a statue up and everyone would have said what a great man, ‘now move onto the board and do an ‘Alex’ [Sir Alex Ferguson] and come back when you want.
“But it’s not for him – and it’s going to end in tears.”
Easy there, Tony. Easy.
