Wenger Set For Crucial Talks

Arsene Wenger is will today hold a crucial meeting with the Arsenal board to discuss his future at the club.

The 67-year-old has been at Arsenal since 1996 and has led them to a string of trophies, the latest coming when they beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.

However, Wenger’s current contract expires shortly and the fans have voiced their desire for him to leave, following a disappointing Premier League season which ended with the Gunners failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 19 years.

The Frenchman is believed to retain the backing of owner Stan Kroenke, which could prove to be a crucial factor in his desire to remain at the Emirates.

“I just want to do well for the club”, Wenger said. “It’s down to the board members. Am I the right man to take this club further? It’s not about popularity, it’s about competence.”
