Arsene Wenger has admitted that there are doubts over his future at Arsenal FC.
The Frenchman confessed to hesitating before signing the new deal in the last campaign. The experienced coach signed a two-year renewal a month before the expiration of the former deal.
Wenger said he thought about personal concerns before agreeing to the new deal as he wondered if he could still take the club to the next level, after being at the club for so long. Finishing in fifth place in the premier league, the first time since 1996, did put things in perspective. However, winning three of the last four FACup tournaments proffers buffer to the fans and club.
With the new season three games in, there are doubts that anything would change at the end of the campaign. After a hard fought game against Leicester City, defeats to Stoke City and Liverpool have confirmed the fears of Wenger’s naysayers.
Wenger’s moves to add quality talents like Thomas Lemar from Monaco failed. There were reports the manager, who is not known to be spendthrift, was desperate that he wanted to break the club record by a mile for the French star. The deal would have cost the Gunners £92 million but the player opted to remain in the Ligue 1 for now. Moves to land KylianMbappe from Monaco also failed as the youngster preferred agreed to a money spinning deal with PSG.
Wenger revealed that he could coach elsewhere after his long stay at the north London club. He admits he has been in contact with PSG. On not winning the Champions League ever, he says he is not bothered and that he would still win the Premier League this year.
