The British media have been on the Arsenal manager’s case once more – but the Frenchman is surely unsackable given his past achievements with the club.
Arsenal’s initially very promising season has started to unravel, with talk of a title challenge dissipating at the all-too inevitable final quarter of the season.
With Bayern Munich knocking the Gunners out of the Champions League and a 3-0 defeat away to Everton at the weekend compounding the misery, talk of Arsene Wenger’s future is starting to really intensify.
With the Toffees now in a position to potentially oust the North Londoners from the top four, plenty of Arsenal fans are being vocal in their opinion that the French manager’s tenure at the Emirates Stadium should come to an end.
However, any talk of his new contract offer being revoked or Wenger being sacked should be discounted immediately.
Although modern day football has built a culture of little patience when it comes to managers, surely Wenger’s case at Arsenal is different.
Think back to when the Frenchman took over at the North London club and look just how far he has taken the team. Like Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, to sack a manager that has given a side so much would be the ultimate insult.
It may well be that Wenger decides to walk away at the end of another underwhelming season, but to be shown the door would be nothing short of a disgrace.
With Wenger’s statue immortalised at the Emirates Stadium for all to see, to get rid of him would be the equivalent of releasing fellow legendary figures Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp on a free transfer.
Wenger should be the man to decide his own future, as the work that he has done to make Arsenal one of the biggest, most profitable and iconic teams in the English game mean that he is not in the sackable category.
