Scout sends blunt warning to Arsenal fans over Arsene Wenger

Arsenal scout Luis Boa Morte has told the club’s fans to be careful what they wish for amid speculation about Arsene Wenger’s future.

The Arsenal manager has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks following the north London club’s poor run of form.

Arsenal’s miserable run of just one win in eight games in all competitions prompted some fans to call for Wenger to step down at the end of the season.

As it stands, the Frenchman still has one year remaining on his contract at Emirates Stadium.

And Gunners scout Boa Morte is convinced that Wenger will remain in charge at the club beyond the summer.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Boa Morte said: “I believe in the boss. For sure he is going to be there next season.

“Arsene Wenger created the philosophy we have at Arsenal. People can talk and protest but I don’t remember any other manager being an Invincible.

“Be careful what you wish for. Look at Manchester United after Ferguson left, who has been successful? Nobody. It is the same thing.

“We can see United’s results and where they are in the table. Things didn’t work out, not because David Moyes and Louis van Gaal are bad managers but Ferguson created a pattern, a way to play. They couldn’t make the team work the same way.

“Something happened for sure because they stopped winning and now they are struggling to finish in the top four.”

Arsenal, who have not won the title since 2004, are currently third in the Premier League and 11 points behind leaders Leicester City. The Gunners are out of all cup competitions after defeats by Watford and Barcelona this month.
