Ian Wright predicts what will happen with Arsene Wenger at Arsenal
The former Arsenal striker delivers his verdict on Arsene Wenger's future at the north London club
Ian Wright admits he can’t see Arsene Wenger standing down as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.
The Gunners boss has come under increasing pressure in recent months after the north London side’s disappointing form in the Premier League and the Champions League.
Arsenal have failed to win five of their last six games in the Premier League following a 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners have fallen off the pace in the title race and even the top-four race, with Wenger’s side now seven points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City.
Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League in February after Wenger’s underachieving side succumbed to a 10-2 aggregate loss to Bayern Munich in the last 16.
Speaking about Wenger’s future after Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City, ex-striker Wright claimed that the 67-year-old is scared to call time on his Arsenal reign.
“I cannot see the Arsene Wenger I know not being in football,” Wright told 606.
“If he did retire, what would he do and that might be a frightening prospect for him.
“It’s like when a player retires – yes, you get to spend more time with the family and do things you have never been allowed to do like go skiing or things like that, but it can be a very scary place because your whole life was football. ”
Arsenal finished in the second place in the Premier League table.
