Arsene Wenger could walk away from Arsenal this summer and return to France for good, that is the view of former Gunner Ray Parlour.
Wenger is currently in his 21st season in charge of Arsenal and with his contract set to expire over the summer, there is speculation whether he will continue on in his role come the start of next season.
The Frenchman has failed to win the Premier League title since 2004 and is on course to go another season without lifting the prestigious trophy for the 13th year in a row. The Gunners are currently nine points adrift of league leaders Chelsea, whom they travel to on Saturday afternoon. The dire result against Watford on Tuesday has left sections of the Arsenal faithful calling for Wenger to leave the club, and Parlour feels another failure could spell the end of the Frenchman’s time at the club.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast Show on talkSPORT, the Romford Pele said:
‘He would know if hasn’t done a good job this season, and I think he would walk.’
Many expect that when Wenger does decide to call it quits as manager of the club that he would move upstairs and become aa part of the Gunners hierarchy, but Parlour believes the Frenchman will more than likely leave altogether:
‘He wouldn’t go upstairs, I think he’d go back to France and that’s it.
‘I don’t think he’d be part of the board. I don’t think he’s the sort of man who would do that.’
If this turns out to be the case, would it be seen as good or bad news that Wenger has completely gone for our club?
