Arsene Wenger's Future In Arsenal To Be Announced Soon

Following his meeting with Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke, it has been widely reported that Arsene Wenger has agreed to a two-year extension to his stay at the Emirates.

Alexis Sanchez celebrates after opening Arsenal's account against Chelsea in the final of FA Cup.

An official decision from the club is set for Wednesday May 31, but the picture has gotten crystal clear by Tuesday evening itself.

For the first time in two decades the Gunners have not qualified for the Champions League and the spotlight, like never before, is being shone on the long-serving figure of Wenger and whether his time at Arsenal is up.

He believes that planes carrying anti-Wenger slogans, boycotts of home games, and signs and banners being displayed inside stadiums cost them dear. Some of what has been going on during games this season has been unacceptable in my view, if you are a fan you should support your team.

"They showed strength and unity", Wenger said, "and we played spectacular football again".

You're not going to hold on to a pick in 2019 and not acquire a player who can unlock another level and bring Cleveland a title. Thomas said at the team's practice facility Friday that the swelling must go down before there is a decision on how to rehab.

Adams retired in 2002 after he and Wenger led Arsenal to a second Premier League and FA Cup double in five seasons.

While Wenger and Arsenal had a handful of successful years early in his tenure with the team, he's been under heavy criticism as of late.

While the benefits of keeping Wenger on are obvious, it doesn't hide the fact that they failed to qualify for the Champions League this season and fell way short in the Premier League title race.

"I think this situation for sure creates a bit of difficulty in your mind because if you start to think we are always in danger, we have died before we die", said the Italian. "I have to give him credit for that, because there were a lot of people saying he can't deliver any more". I don't think I could have done much more this season, it is the coach's decision and you have to respect that.

Many observers wrote off Arsenal's chances before the game due to Mertesacker's impending involvement, but the 32-year-old used that negativity as motivation and went on to produce an assured display in his side's 2-1 victory.
