Arsene Wenger will turn his back on the Arsenal job and walk away from his position if he wins the F.A Cup this weekend, according to Hull City legend Dean Windass.
The Daily Star relays quotes from the 45-year-old ex-football, which offer his opinion on Arsenal’s long-serving French boss. As far as Windass is concerned then this Saturday’s cup final against his old club could be the last game Wenger ever oversees at the Gunners, as it would give him the perfect opportunity to walk away as a hero.
Wenger’s current deal is up in the summer and, despite many being insistent that he will be offered the chance to continue his work at the Emirates Stadium, speculation still shrouds his future. There are those who believe that a lengthy new contract will be offered to him shortly after the final on Saturday, but Windass believes there’s every chance it could be swiftly rejected.
“I think Arsene will walk away,” Windass said.
“He has been one of the most successful managers in Premier League history and to have been in charge of Arsenal for as long as he has is incredible.
“But Arsene has had his time and if they do not win the FA Cup he should leave.
“Even if they were to win the FA Cup, I still think he should walk away and let someone new start a fresh era at the club.
“At the end of the day, Arsenal are a massive football club and are use to winning trophies. And having not won any silverware for nine years, fans are right to question his ambition.
“But win the FA Cup, walk away and have a fresh challenge is what I feel Arsene is planning to do.”
