Keown suggests how long Wenger may continue at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger Pre FA Cup Press Conference 2

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has made a prediction over the future of the club's manager Arsene Wenger.

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown told talkSPORT that he feels Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger may feel as though he’s got another decade left in the tank at the club.

Wenger is currently the longest serving manager in the Premier League and Football League, with a career which stretches back to 1996.

He’s got a little way to go before he takes the record away from ex-Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, but Keown feels as though he’s definitely got it within him to knuckle down and carry on.

“He’s someone who’s always looking to build for the future – He’s got two years left, but in his own mind he’ll feel that he’s got ten years left,” he told talkSPORT.

Would Wenger walk away in two years?

Wenger’s experience and past success means he more than likely has a job at Arsenal until he chooses to walk away.

The Gunners may look to switch his contract to a one-year rolling deal at the end of his current agreement, which creates a little more flexibility on both sides.

There is a real case to suggest that Wenger will have to be pushed before he walks because he could still feel as though he’s got a few points to prove.

He will have a deep determination to win the Premier League again with this current crop of players and he will be determined to make a better attempt of winning the Champions League, a competition which has so far alluded him.
