Arsene Wenger's future to be decided after FA Cup final

20 May 2017

Instead, when asked if a decision would be made at a board meeting after the May 27 FA Cup final for a decision, he simply responded "yes".

Large numbers of supporters opted not to attend the game in protest at the running of the north London club, who could finish the season without securing Champions League football for next year.

But speaking at a news conference on Friday, he confirmed the situation would be discussed at the board meeting, which is expected to be attended by owner Stan Kroenke. The board may also prefer to keep Wenger on at the club with many of Europe's top mangers already in employment.

"One is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players to come in and things like that". I agree with Wenger that watching Sunderland wouldn't be the most exciting of games, but if anything it should be a game with plenty of goals and that should be even more of an incentive for the fans to make an appearance, shouldn't it?

"Back in the day I said in an interview coaching wasn't Arsene's strong point", he wrote in a new autobiography being serialised in a national newspaper.

There will be a board meeting after the FA Cup final one week on Saturday, which will finalise Wenger's future.

In a three-way race for the final two Champions League qualification spots, Arsenal is the outsider.

If Arsenal beat Everton 1-0 and City lose 4-0 against Watford, the Gunners and Citizens would have the same points, the same goal difference and the same goals scored and could be tied for third or fourth depending on Liverpool's result.

If Arsene Wenger guides his side to another season of Champions league football he will have increased his chances of remaining in charge at Arsenal.

When probed whether it will be his last ever game, he added: "I can not tell you that." . It's worrying to see that Arsenal has become a club where it can not sell out or even if the tickets are sold, then many fans can not be bothered to turn up as a result of our lacklustre performances this season.

When asked about Adams' remarks, the Frenchman was dismissive in his reply, saying: "I do not give too much importance to what Tony Adams says, honestly".

Adams suggested that Wenger did not want him back at the club in a coaching capacity due to a potential challenge to his authority, but the Frenchman insists that former players have no divine right to expect a job after they retire.

'Much as I respected him for his long and successful tenure, my occasional willingness to pass comment on him and the team probably counted against me'.
