'Arsene Wenger could quit Arsenal after Premier League title success'

It would be hard to imagine an Arsenal team without Arsene Wenger at the helm, but Gunners fans may have to get used it - If they win the Premier League title that is - according to Bob Wilson.

Wenger took charge of his 1,000th game for the club today, an embarrassing 6-0 defeat against Chelsea, but he is yet to sign a new contract.

Former goalkeeper Wilson reckons that the Frenchman will step aside if he can guide his side to title glory.

“I think he should [sign a new deal],” Commented Wilson, who made over 200 appearances for the north Londoners. 

“But there will come a time when Arsene will decide [to quit], maybe it will be when he wins a trophy, which of course they can do this season, but I don’t think the FA Cup [would count]. I think it would happen if he could win the Premier League title again.”

The Gunners are without a trophy in nine years after dramatic shortcomings in recent times but are battling on two fronts for silverware this season.

Arsenal are still in the hunt for their first title for ten years but the damaging defeat at Stamford Bridge seriously harms their title credentials. The Blues moved seven points clear of Wengers men at the top of the table. 

They are also in the semi finals of the FA Cup and are favorites to win the competition. 

72-year-old Wilson spent 11 years at Highbury and won a First Division and FA Cup double in the 1970/71 season.

He worked as a goalkeeping coach at Arsenal for 28 years before leaving in 2003 and has also worked as a broadcaster.
