If rumors are to be believed, Arsenal may lose the services of long-standing manager Arsene Wenger next season. This may come as a shock to football fans all over the world, as Wenger has been one of the longest serving managers in the Premier League.
Wenger, 62, has seldom been clear about his long-term plans with the club. He has now hinted that he may leave the club in May, when the current season ends. However, this decision could also be taken by the board if the North London club fails to finish, at the very least, in the top four this season.
The Frenchman, who still has two years on his contract, said he will be reviewing his position at the end of the season. However, he did also say that his possible departure would not change anything and his successor would have the opportunity to achieve success based on the strong foundation he has built.
According to a Caughtoffside report, Wenger may return to France's Ligue 1 with Paris St. Germain, who are now one of Europe's richest clubs.
Wenger, who recently completed 15 years at Arsenal, has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996. He has led them to three Premier League titles and four FA Cup wins and became the first non-British manager to win the double (winning the league and the cup in the same season) in 1998, a feat that he repeated in 2002.
In 2004, he became the only manager in Premier League history to go through an entire season unbeaten. The run, however, ended at 49 games.
