Wenger keeping this season’s FA Cup medal – a hint at his future?


Having admitted earlier in the week that he never keeps any of the medals he’s presented with when Arsenal win a cup or a championship, Arsene Wenger appears to have had a change of heart with regards to Saturday’s 2-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley.

The Arsenal manager is going to hold onto his 2017 FA Cup final winners medal, having spoken before the game about how he gave previous medals to others.

“I have no medal at home anyway, from anything,” he said.

“You come to my home you will be surprised. There is no trophy, no medal, nothing. You would not even guess that I am a football manager.

“Apart from the fact that a football game is on!”

However, after the win over Chelsea, he said this is one that he’s not going to part with.

“For once I have kept my medal,” he said, “so that means it’s a special night for me.

“For the rest, we’ll see what happens in the future.”

Is it a hint at his future? It’s difficult to know, but we don’t have too much longer to wait.

A decision, one way or the other, is expected after Tuesday’s scheduled board meeting, so hold onto your hats folks.
