French national Arsene Wenger’s legacy at the Emirates has lasted like a romantic song but now seems to be crumbling like the climax of an action sequence.
Recent result against the Old Trafford franchise where Arsenal were out-played has now seen the dream of a Premier League title in more than 10 years go farther away.
Arsenal who failed to take anything from the game against United are now 3rd in the points table 5 points away from the Foxes at the top of the table with just 11 matches remaining in the season.
This has seen a number of ‘Wenger out’ chants from the fans of the franchise all around the City but the most intriguing advancement in this matter came earlier today.
The odds compilers at Ladbrokes have cut the price in Wenger going following the defeat to Manchester United.
The Gunners boss is just 9/2 to walk in the off-season after they lost further ground in the Premier League title race.
Ladbrokes spokesman Richard Marsh said: “It’s a growing prospect that Arsenal could be seeking a new boss this summer.
This will throw Arsenal in the pool of clubs who need a manager this summer along with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Bayern in Europe.
It’s just 1/4 that Arsenal will have to wait at least another year to win the league, while it’s 4/7 the north Londoners finish this season without any trophies at all.
However, the manager was not fazed by the disappointment at Old Trafford and explained that it was important for the squad to put the loss behind them and to start finding some consistency if they are win the title.
He said: “We dropped three important points but we have to show we are up for the fight and bounce back on Wednesday night.
With 33 points still on offer and most top 4 teams still to play each other, a gap of 5 points is not too huge for the London franchise to cover till the end of the season however, they will have to find some results even on night like in Manchester, otherwise the title is may fast slip away this season.
Wenger also explained that there is no point in talking about the points table now and that it might be completely different at the end of the season.
“We have to not feel sorry for ourselves. Mathematically, what it means, we will only know at the end of the season,” he added.
However, it will be interesting to see what the Emirates franchise will do after the end of the season but Wenger would surely want to win more trophies before leaving Arsenal behind.
