This week, the waiting should be over; we could finally find out what the future holds for Arsene Wenger.

Speaking after Arsenal’s 2-1 FA Cup final win over Chelsea on Saturday, which Wenger described as one of his proudest moments, the boss admitted that you can’t manage a football team at the top level for as long as he has without thinking you’re the right man for the job.

“There is no perfect way,” Wenger told Standard Sport.

“I just want to do well for this club. It’s down to the board members [to ask] am I the right man to lead this club further and for me to decide if I’m the right man.

“It’s not about popularity. It’s about competence.

“You cannot go 35 years at the top level if you do not think you are the right man to do the job.”

Arsenal’s majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, flew over from America for the FA Cup final, as well as talks with Wenger over his future.

A board meeting is expected to take place on Tuesday, so an announcement will most likely happen this week on Wednesday or Thursday.

While many thought the Frenchman sounded as if he could be leaving after Arsenal’s historic win at Wembley, he does seem to be saying he still thinks he’s the right man for the job, and the general feeling in the media is that he’ll sign a new two-year deal but have to make some compromises.

The board allegedly wants him in charge but also wants to shuffle things around and bring in someone else to help oversee transfer negotiations.

It’ll be down to Wenger to decide whether he can work with others or not.
