Harry Redknapp makes prediction about Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal future
Harry Redknapp discusses Arsene Wenger's position at Arsenal
Harry Redknapp believes that Arsene Wenger will have the final say on when he leaves Arsenal.
The Frenchman has found himself under increasing pressure in recent weeks following his side’s stuttering form.
Wenger watched his side’s Champions League hopes be emphatically ended by Barcelona after a 3-1 win for the Spanish side at Camp Nou on Wednesday night.
That defeat followed their surprise FA Cup elimination at the hands of Watford at Emirates Stadium last weekend.
Arsenal now only have the Premier League to play for as they bid to win their first top flight title since their famous unbeaten triumph back in the 2003-04 season.
Wenger has found himself under relentless scrutiny in recent weeks as a result of Arsenal’s run of just one win in eight games in all competitions.
However, former Tottenham boss Redknapp feels that Wenger will have the final say on his position.
Writing in his column for the London Evening Standard, Redknapp said: “Arsene will go when he has had enough. The board will not sack him. He runs the club from top to bottom.
“He’s got a year left and perhaps then he’ll move abroad — he’s always loved the idea of going back to Japan apparently so he could work there — but he won’t be pushed out.”
He added: “He has earned the right to go when he feels it is the right time. The fans might accelerate that if they continue to protest against him every week but they must realise change doesn’t automatically make things better.”
