Former double-winner and Arsenal goalkeeping coach Bob Wilson says he believes Arsene Wenger could call it a day at the end of his current contract.
The Frechman’s future is increasingly in the spotlight after last night’s 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich, and with his contract expiring in June, the mood doesn’t lend itself to the extension on offer from the club.
Ultimately it is Wenger who will decide, and Wilson believes that in the current climate he could decide to end his 21 year tenure.
“He’s a hugely intelligent man, and he is hurt,” he told BBC 5Live.
“You know, he’s totally dedicated, but I wouldn’t at all surprised if Arsene now, with the headlines that are coming his way, that he will look at that and say ‘Two decades’, which has been extraordinary.
“An extraordinary growth of the club in all sorts of ways. He might just look at that and say ‘Ok, enough is enough’.
“Because I think as a human being you can only take so much.”
Following the defeat in Munich, Wenger hinted to German TV that he could make a decision as early as March, but we’ll have to just wait and see what happens.
