Arsene Wenger’s time as Arsenal manager appears to be coming to a close. That’s if form is anything to go by. The Gunners have endured a desperately poor start to 2018, and after back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City, their problems were compounded by today’s 2-1 loss to Brighton.
The Gunners are now 13 points behind Spurs in fourth place, and a whopping 33 behind leaders City.
Most fans are calling for a change at the top, and Wenger’s future naturally was a hot topic of conversation for the Sky Sports pundits at fulltime.
Thierry Henry was in studio, and he discussed a potential return to the North London club in a coaching capacity.
“Listen, I’m a competitor, you don’t back down from a challenge. We are hypothetically speaking before people jump ahead of everything, [but] I have never backed down from a challenge since I was young.
“When I came back to play for Arsenal, everybody, all my friends were saying, ‘It can only tarnish your legacy, why are you going back there?’. “If you love a place and they ask – I repeat, they ask – for help, you are always going to say yes. What I am saying to you is again, we are talking about hypothetical thoughts.”
“A lot of people came out and said ‘I want the job’, but calm down.
“What I don’t want to see is what’s happening to him (Wenger), and I would like him to have the last word, whatever word it’s going to be.”
Next up for Arsenal is a Europa League clash with AC Milan on Thursday.
