Rumours Say Wenger Told The Players He’s Leaving After Chelsea Loss

By on March 23, 2014

Rumours are gathering pace suggesting that Arsene Wenger could leave Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Firstly, the Daily Mail reported on Sunday morning that well-placed sources at the Emirates have indicated to them that the boss was giving serious consideration to his future after Saturday’s humiliation at Stamford Bridge.

The Frenchman did appear to indicate the Chelsea match was a defining moment for both him and the club, and the newspaper suggests that Arsene is feeling the pressure after nine trophy-barren years and could be ready to call time on his Arsenal career.

Some journalists on Twitter then suggested they had heard whispers that something was going on behind the scenes at the Emirates following the news that Wenger had cancelled his pre-match press conference ahead of Tuesday’s game against Swansea.

Then came the BIG news, with Arsenal Action tweeting that Arsene told the players in the dressing room after the Chelsea game that he was leaving in the summer and asked them to play for him until the end of the season. Players were supposedly told not to use any social media networks but have let slip to family members, which could be how the news (if true) has leaked.

Here are the tweets:

Obviously this is all speculation at this point, and Arsenal Action are known to be anti-Arsene, but if there is anything in it I’m sure it will be in the newspaper before long.

Personally, I’m skeptical. I really don’t think Arsene would make a rash decision on his future immediately after a 6-0 loss. He’s an intelligent man and a procrastinator, he would have given himself time to think things over. Not make a quick decision like that.

But who knows. Maybe the Chelsea loss was the final straw for him and he realised he can’t take this squad any further. There’s got to be a reason he hasn’t signed his new deal yet….

What do you think? Would you be sad to see Arsene go? Or is it time for a change?

    Arsenal action? Really, Arsenal action? You should be ashamed of yourself! Do some research before you quote tweets from some attention seeking 12 year old from somewhere in Pakistan or Indonesia.

    Good radiance to bad rubbish. He should at least toe the line of honor and quit with his arrogance and blind pride.

    He docent have to go,he just has to alter his tactics as they may work against the teams who set out to defend but as soon as we face a team willing to attack we are left open and in a shambles. He has to make defence his number 1 priority, if you can keep a clean sheet then scoring is something we are more than capable of, oh and don’t just favour the technically slight footed players, we need big strong imposing players in the midfield, ox + arteta vs Matic and Luiz, they were always going to get bossed.

    All d blames can’t be on wenger, what abt d players themselves, they are nt ready for silverwhere @all they’re nt playing for the manager even @ his1000th game incharge of arsenal rather they allow mouriho word to prevail over wenger. I’m rather disappointed in d players who cannot prove their worth. I beg wenger to stay.

        Wenger has already agreed to stay on till 2016.Its not his fault but we have a very ordinary side with no one special except for Ozil and he cant adapt to the English style of play.We need a new Manager and a new team.

    I’m officially announcing that I will no longer read articles on the internet or in newspapers.

    Everything is rumour and speculation with not a single fact in sight.

    Then we get people commenting who can’t spell but seemingly think they have the ability and knowledge of a world class football manager and are perpetuating cmplete garbage instead of actually thinking for themselves (if that’s possible in some cases) and reaching a rational conclusion.

    Saddos, the lot of you.

    If at all AW is made up on leaving certainly, it musn’t be now. He came and started performing football wonders since 97, his 2nd year and moved us to Emirate which still remains a laudable achievement.
    But, he must shut-up his critics with another DOUBLE before he call it off. Please Arsene, now that we’ve overcome our indebtness to Emirate hence giving us a financial bouyancy, I strongly believe you can put a smile on a cheecks again.

    Wenger should have left 4 years ago! He has lost sight of his real job Managing a Football Team! Greed & Money has been the focus Greed is the board skimming as much as they can from the club spending pittance on players then Wenger earning so much money to keep his mouth shut about it! Totally being betrayed are all the Fans who pay well over priced tickets to watch this rubbish every year! Wenger & Board Out!!! Usmanov in Jergen Klopp in!

    So I took them in my backpack (not before putting one on in the
    mall WC), caught a bus went as far away as I could from everyone and everything,
    as I was sitting alone in a dark alley (No idea where it was or how I got there) I felt my crotch become warm, and I put my hand in and
    I felt I was peeing, I didn’t notice it even. It doesn’t have the sharp
    ‘whites’ that you would get from the SLCD2 display on the HTC One X, but the contrast ratio more than makes up for it.
    Now, I will say this list is small and pretty much self-explanatory as it is.
