Sadly, it seems that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s time at the club is approaching a sharp end. The Gunners are underperforming in every competition this season and haven’t looked a real threat to anybody consistently since before the new year.
Wenger is, without a doubt, Arsenal’s greatest ever manager and despite not achieving his ultimate goal of UEFA Champions League success, he has turned the club into the world powerhouse that it is today. With the Gunners, he has won three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and six FA Community Shields as well as numerous individual awards, including 15 Manager of the Month’s and three Manager of the Season awards.
However, this season, with all of their main rivals faltering in the league, it looked as thought he Frenchman was set to win his first league title in over a decade, and while that is still a possibility, it is looking less and less likely with every week.
With the pressure mounting on the Frenchman, the Arsenal board may make the decision to release the veteran manager from his contract, but if they did, who could take on the legacy that he has built for himself?
