Another 12 seasons of this and you’re fired, board warns Wenger

10-02-17

ARSENE Wenger has been warned that he has until 2029 to win the Premier League or face the consequences.

The unprecendented warning from the club’s board comes after a mere 12 years of failure to win the league even when nobody else is trying to.

CEO Ivan Gazidis said: “The club cannot go on like this. We need change and we need it within the next decade and a bit.

“Otherwise, difficult as it would be to dismiss a 79-year-old with his best years in management still ahead of him, Mr Wenger could find himself looking for a new job.”

But fan Norman Steele said: “This short-termist hire-and-fire mentality is everything that is wrong with modern football.

“Wenger needs time to build a team, then build another team, then build a team again.

“Plus by 2021 Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby’s sons will be available and when they play they’ll feel like new signings.”
