Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright says Arsene Wenger has indicated he is “coming to the end” of his 21-year stint as Gunners manager.
Wenger’s contract expires after this season and his future is in serious doubt after the Gunners fell 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea with a 3-1 loss at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
Wright, who attended a Q&A event with Wenger on Thursday night, said he was given the impression that the Frenchman could be stepping down this summer.
“I was with the boss last night and if I’m going to be totally honest I get the impression that that’s it,” Wright told BBC Radio Five Live. “I was with him for a few hours last night and we’re talking. He didn’t say to me ‘I’m leaving at the end of the season’ but … I get the impression looking at him that that’s it.
“He actually mentioned when I was talking to him last night that he’s coming to the end. I’ve never heard him say that.” – ESPN
