Arsenal Heartache! Wenger Set for new 2-Year Contract After FA Cup Final
Despite the aggressive #WengerOut campaign from majority of Arsenal fans in light of another underwhelming season, the Frenchman is set to extend his contract at the Emirates by another two years irrespective of the outcome of today’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.
According to Mirror, the announcement could come as early as next week with the club fully committed to him staying with a behind-the-scenes reshuffle.
At the end, it comes down to Wenger’s future not being decided on the result of 90 minutes after over two decades in charge of the club.
Premier League champions Chelsea come in as red-hot favourites as Arsenal underdogs and are missing captain Laurent Koscielny.
Arsenal ran out 2-0 winners the last time both sides clashed in the FA Cup final in 2002, but the scales have been tipped since then as the Blues now parade themselves as the bosses of London, and for good reason.
The decline notwithstanding, there is still a view that Wenger has been remarkably loyal, consistent and with the right changes the club can challenge at the top again.
This comes after majority shareholder, US tycoon Stan Kroenke, reaffirmed that he is at the club for the long term and to win trophies after a threatening offer from Russian billionaire, Alisher Usmanov.
