With his contract still unsigned, Thomas Vermaelen says the players want Arsene Wenger to stay in charge of the team for the foreseeable future.
The smart money is on Wenger signing if Arsenal lift a trophy this season while doubts will grow should they fail to take the chance presented by the FA Cup, but the captain has backed the manager to stay on.
“Everybody wants him to stay as long as he can. He’s been incredible with what he’s done for this club and for the players as well.
“We would be really happy to see him signing on for a few more years.”
Vermaelen touched on tomorrow’s game against Chelsea, as the Gunners look to become the first team to taker a win at Stamford Bridge while Jose Mourinho is manager.
“I think Chelsea are quite disciplined as a team and they have a good shape,” he said. “They defend very well and have a lot of experience in that team, so they are used to playing in big games.
“But we have that as well at the moment, we’re quite balanced and the team is very disciplined defensively as well as score, so hopefully we can perform.”
The manager has called it the most important game of the season, so let’s hope the team can perform.
