John Hartson tells Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal: This is why
John Hartson explains why he thinks it's time for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal
John Hartson believes that it is time for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal.
The Frenchman’s situation at The Emirates has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks due to the fact that his contract is due to expire in the summer.
Wenger has remained typically coy whenever quizzed about his future beyond the summer transfer window and it remains to be seen whether he will still be in charge at The Emirates next season.
And former Arsenal star Hartson feels that it is time for the Frenchman to quit the north London side and allow another manager to take over.
Speaking on BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show, Hartson said: “Personally I just feel that he has taken Arsenal as far as he can.
“I would like to see a change. That hurts me to say that, but I genuinely feel it needs freshening up.
“They need another manager to come in and to be allowed to go and spend the money that is there to make Arsenal that little bit stronger.”
Arsenal can still end the season with some silverware, with Wenger’s men set to take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.
The Gunners finished second and without a trophy last season.
