Arsene Wenger Retires
Arsenal Wengers last wave.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has announced his retirement after spending eighteen years with the club. Wenger is the longest serving manager in the clubs history, and most successful in terms of major titles won. Pundits of football credit Wenger for his contribution to revolutionising football in England in the late 90s for the introduction to the changes in training, and his diet plans.
Wenger, who is now 64, took Arsenal to fourth place in his last season after not winning the Premier League for ten years now. But he felt that the time was right to retire.
I felt that the time was right, I’ve ran out passion for the game, I need to rest and be with my family now. The club has been great for me, and I love this club.” Wenger had this to say at his last press-conference for the club.
“I have left the club in a good state. The staff knows what they are doing here, and there is a great squad of players here, that have the ability to win trophies. Something I couldn’t do for the past eight years.”
Arsenal will now be looking for a new manager. Michael Landraup is favourite for the job, with a surprise return for SAF maybe on the cards. But only Stan Kroenke knows who shall be appointed.
