Arsene Wenger set to be offered two-year contract extension

It’s fair to say that the majority of Arsenal fans would be pleased to see Arsene Wenger leave the club at the end of the season.

The Frenchman has been in charge of the north London club for 20 years but for the previous 12 campaigns, he’s failed in his bid to win the Premier League.

This has angered many Gooners who want to see him step down as manager this summer after Leicester beat them to the league title while north London rivals Tottenham look set to finish above them for the first time since Wenger took over.

The manager’s contract expires next summer and it’s believed that he will have the opportunity to see out the remainder of his deal.

Those that don’t want to see Wenger leave this summer are happy for him to honour his contract. However, not too many will be impressed if the Wenger stays beyond the end of next season.

That is what The Times are reporting this morning and it’s fair to say Arsenal fans are pretty furious. If you don’t believe us, just check out the tweets below:

The newspaper ran with the large back page heading: “Arsenal will offer Wenger new deal,” and state that he could be offered a two-year extension.

The report also states that Wenger has until October to decide but it’s believed that he will put pen to paper at the start of next season, at the very latest.

While Arsenal supporters may be disillusioned with life under their manager, he has managed to achieve 20 consecutive top-four finishes whilst at the club. During that time, he has led the club to three Premier League titles and six FA Cups.

It seemed as though he would make it four league titles this season with Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City all struggling for form.

After beating league leaders Leicester on February 14, the Gunners were heavy favourites to be crowned champions come May. But, in the 16 matches that has followed, Wenger’s side have won just five. This has seen them dumped out of the FA Cup by Watford, crash out of the Champions League against Barcelona and fall 12 points behind champions Leicester.

This form has angered Arsenal fans with plenty of unrest at the club, which has seen some protests against their long-serving boss. If the report from The Times is true, it’s likely there will be even more Gooners left fuming.
