Arsene Wenger: Arsenal Manager Future Decided After FA Cup Final Against Chelsea - 4 years ago
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says his future at the club will be decided at a board meeting after the FA Cup final on 27 May. The 67-year-old Frenchman has been with the Gunners since 1996 and his contract comes to an end this summer. Wenger has faced numerous protests by Arsenal’s own supporters this season, calling for him to quit as boss. “There are many aspects to be discussed at a board meeting. One is what happens with the manager,” he said. “Of course I will be there. At the moment we should focus on the short term and what is going on on Sunday and in the cup final.” The north London side face Premier League champions Chelsea at Wembley Stadium, the Gunners’ only hope of claiming a trophy this campaign. But the season has been blighted by continuous questions surrounding his future at the club and banners from fans demanding he end his long association with the club. In their previous away game at Stoke, a plane was flown over the stadium which read “Wenger – out means out”.
