22 years. That’s the amount of time a man named Arsene Wenger spent with Arsenal. Appointed in 1996, he went on to write his name into the history books of Football.
In his 22 years of management, Arsenal slipped out of the top 4 of the Premier League just twice. Those were the last 2 years of the Frenchman’s reign at the club. Fans feared that he had lost his touch.
Wenger had a very bitter ending to his time at Arsenal after winning 3 Premier League titles and 7 FA cups, a record for the manager. The fans protested and the club board gave into their requests.
Arsenal fans are already making some noise over Arteta’s management at Emirates. After latest defeat against rivals Tottenham Hotspur, #ArtetaOut is trending on social media networks.
Wenger could be back with Arsenal next year?
Some of the staff at Arsenal have claimed that Wenger was really disappointed at the end of his tenure. It is understood that he was frustrated by the Board for not backing him.
Contrary to what people may think, it didn’t end well. And he didn’t feel it ended well. He felt he deserved better. And he did deserve better. When Peter Hill-Wood died, he should have been made chairman.
They had to keep him. You don’t lose someone who has his ability, expertise, intelligence and honesty.– Arsenal Employee
Some sources have stated that he has decided to not to return to the Emirates, even for a match.
However, according to the Mail on Sunday, the chief executive of Arsenal visited Wenger to reassure him he is always welcome amid a reported tribute to be unveiled next year.
Arsenal with Mikel Arteta:
After Wenger stepped down in 2018, Unai Emery took over the Gunners. In his first season in charge, they finished 5th in the Premier League and reached the finals of the Europa League eventually losing to Chelsea.
After the 19/20 season started on a terrible note, Emery received the sack. Mikel Arteta succeeded him. With Arteta, Arsenal finished 8th in the league. However, they won the FA Cup and the FA Community Shield.
Currently, Arsenal are 15th in the Premier League after securing just 13 points in 11 games. This is the worst start to their season in 45 years. Hopefully, they can turn it around and bring the club to the level Arsene Wenger once brought it to.
