Arsenal today announced on his official site that Arsene Wenger decided to terminate his position Officially despite the fact that he still has a valid contract for twelve months.
Only yesterday there were rumours about who could replace Arsene Wenger as a Gunner manager. The main candidate became Patrick Vieira at least for him appointed by the media. The Frenchman himself was not convinced because a month earlier he had said that he was not interested although he could be one day.
Earlier Massimiliano Allegri, Leonardo Jardim and even Luis Enrique were tried on this job. Obviously, these were only speculations because there was still a chance that Arsene Wenger would be next. The Frenchman’s departure has been said for a long time but it never came to fruition and nothing indicated that in this case, it would be different. However, now we know for sure that there is no such option.
It should be noted here that the Frenchman is not released and voluntarily resigns from his stool at the end of the season. He also included in the statement a brief explanatory letter on the entire matter.
After many discussions and discussions with the club I decided it was a good time to let go. I am very grateful for the privilege of running this club for so many great years. I led the team with full commitment. I would like to thank the staff, footballers, owners and, above all the fans who make this club so special. I urge all fans to support the club on the way to success. Take care of the value of this club.
This is an extremely important moment for the entire Premier League because Wenger was the manager with the longest experience in one club. Of course, taking into account the still active trainers because he still did not beat Ferguson. However, the Frenchman for each club fan is associated with some memories and certainly, everyone will miss him. This is undoubtedly the end of an era.
