Wenger unsure of future

Post by AFC Boi on Mon Jun 09, 2008 4:21 am

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that his future beyond 2011 is uncertain.

Wenger has led The Gunners to three Premier League titles and four FA Cup trophies since he took over at the club in 1996.

However, recent reports in the media speculated that he may succeed close friend Charles Villeneuve as president of Paris St Germain.

It was claimed that the Frenchman will join up with PSG once his contract expires at Emirates Stadium in 2011.

Wenger has played down the rumours, but concedes he is unsure of what the future holds beyond his current deal.

Uncertain

"The owner [of PSG] came to see me to see how we are organised," he said on Sky Sports News.

"He named a guy (Villeneuve) president who is a friend of mind, and if I can help him I will help him.

"I am under contract until 2011; I know I will not go on forever. After 2011, if I manage to get there, I really do not know what I will do."

Wenger also spoke of Avram Grant's sacking at Chelsea, expressing his belief that clubs should demonstrate patience rather than chop and change their managers.

"I don't know why Chelsea made the change, I was surprised," Wenger explained.

Risk

"I feel that Avram Grant did well. Why not stay with him? If John Terry puts the penalty (in the UEFA Champions League final) in Grant is the same manager with the same qualities.

"If it (Grant's future) was decided on the ball going in or out then we will not have good coaches anymore in this game.

"Why? Because we will not have any risk. I believe that for the development of the game, giving time to a manager is very important."

I really can't imagine Arsenal without Arsene Wenger, it just wouldn't feel right. Hopefully he will stay on longer though over 2011. Could mean no more of out beautiful football unless Van basten and Dennis Bergkamp/Tony Adam take charge! Really don't want Arsene to go though Sad

Yeah.. 3 years which will be 2011 Sad

Don't think id ever think id say this but it will be sad seeing Fergie leave aswell. All the rivalry between Wenger and Fergie will soon come to an end. Can stick ya fucking Mourinho's, Grants, Benitez but they wont get anywhere close to the Fergie v Wenger feuds over the years and there both go out with a bang!

Hopefully something can be arranged nearer the time for a Arsenal v United game with both managers in charge for the last time, that would be great to see thumbs up

Tony Adams aint a bad shout, wouldn't mind seeing an Englishman actually coach one of the big 4.
