Gazidis: ‘we’ll deal with Wenger in our own way and time’


Arsene Wenger position as a manager of the club has been hotly disputed amongst arsenal fans for a number of seasons now. The Frenchman’s deal is due to run out at the end of this season and it is unsure if he will sign the new contract Arsenal are offering, or if he will finally walk away from the club after 20 years of service.

According to the Sky Sports, Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has stated the club will deal with Wenger’s future in their own time, thus raising the issue of Wenger staying on as manager. The Arsenal Chief executive discussed Wenger at a Vatican conference of faith and sport recently.

‘He’s been clear and we’ve always been clear, that’s a mutual decision as to how long he’ll continue. Both need to be on the same page on that. Arsenal is not Arsene Wenger. They’re not one in the same thing. In a football sense, he has transformed the club.’


The Frenchman enjoyed a hot bed of success during his first nine years as manager winning three premier league titles, including an invincible season, and four FA cups. This success, however, has diminished during the last 12 years, with just two FA cups, albeit in a time where Arsenal moved stadia.

Wenger’s situation is still reasonably unclear. Although he ruled out a move to become England manager in the summer, the Frenchman has not ruled out the possibility of managing the national team one day, however, what is clear is that the club are more than happy to extend Wenger’s contract at the expense of the fans anger.
