Despite Arsenal being in terrible form, David Seaman doesn’t see Arsene Wenger leaving until his contract expires in 2019.
The calls for Wenger to resign after almost 22 years at Arsenal have never been louder but Seaman, who played underneath the Frenchman from 1996-2003, believes his former Boss will still see out his contract in north London.
“If Arsene wins the Europa League then maybe he will see out his contract but, if not, then the board have got to make a decision,” said Seaman, reports the BBC.
“People say Arsene runs the club but it’s not that. It’s business and the board will run the club and make that decision.
“I think he will see his contract out. Arsene is a very stubborn gentleman.”
The sad part is, I actually agree with Seaman. Although we keep saying something HAS to change and trying to reassure ourselves that SURELY the club will ask Wenger to leave, most of us still feel quite that the board will do no such thing.
It leaves fans with this feeling of desperate hopelessness because all we can do is watch on while the team gets worse and a manager we once loved – and most still do – tarnishes his legacy.
After Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Sunday, Wenger’s men are 13 points off Spurs in fourth. Finishing in the top four this season isn’t mathematically impossible but it’s beyond improbable.
Despite Seaman and most Arsenal fans still believing that Wenger will try and see out the remaining year of his contract, it will still be perplexing if the board allow it.
At the moment, it feels like Arsenal will never win a game again.
