Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, has held a closed-door meeting with owner Stan Kroenke to decide his future.
The outcome of the meeting is not known but it is expected that their decision will be communicated to the directors at the club’s next board meeting on Tuesday.
Although terms of a new deal for Wenger had already been discussed earlier in the season, it still hasn’t been signed. But it is believed that the French man will stay at the club after spending 21 years at the helm of its affairs.
The last season brought about immense criticism from fans of the club as the club finished missed out on the Champions League for the first time in his reign at the club.
However, the FA cup win over Chelsea has spurred them on as it established Wenger had the successful manager in FA cup history and Arsenal the best club in the history of the competition.
While Stan Kroenke wants Arsene Wenger to remain at the club. Some members of the board feel it’s time for the manager to leave.
However, Kroenke is the majority shareholder so he gets to decide the future of Wenger. So Wenger’s major concern is the reaction of fans and how it can affect player’s performance next season.
Arsene Wenger has also admitted that he is uncertain of his position and this played a part in the club’ performance this season. So he would want to resolve this situation as soon as possible so the club can start preparation for the next season.
