Arsenal have told Sky Sports that there is no truth to reports that he could leave the club this summer to manage in Turkey.
The 61 year-old has been Arsene Wenger’s right-hand man since his arrival at the club in 1996, and it was suggested yesterday that he was in line to take over at Turkish side Konyaspor this summer.
However, according to an Arsenal spokesman, the reports were simply ‘wild speculation’ and said they were completely unaware of any intention on Primorac’s part to quit the club this summer.
It always seemed unlikely that Primorac would leave the post he’s held for so many years, and as one of Wenger’s most trusted lieutenants, it led to speculation that the manager’s future had already been decided.
For now though, Arsenal have put a dampener on that, and we still await clarity regarding the managerial situation for next season.
