The former Arsenal legend and striker Ian Wright has said that he feels that the manager Arsene Wenger is right man for the club despite several calls by the fans for the resignation of the Frenchman. Arsene Wenger has been at the club for more than 15 seasons during which time he has guided the club to reverse trophies. He was also one of the chief architects of the unbeaten Premier League season that the club had in the 2003-04 season. It was also the last time they won the Premier league title. They have been struggling a lot in recent seasons, which have led to some of the fans demanding his resignation.
Even though Arsene Wenger still retains the support of most of the fans and the board, the small majority of fans who have been calling for a change in management have made themselves heard in recent weeks due to a poor run of results. Arsenal were recently thrown out of the League Cup following the penalty defeat to league two club Bradford city. This humiliation has meant that Arsenal have lost the opportunity to win the title this season. It has been seven seasons since Arsenal last lifted a major trophy.
“I wouldn’t like to see him go, I’d like to see him bring people in that he’s going to listen to. I personally don’t feel that [assistant manager] Steve Bould is getting his hands on the steering wheel in respect of the training as much as people think. There’s a lot of things happening at Arsenal that I think that people have got the right to know what’s going on,” said the former Arsenal player. Arsene Wenger was responsible for making Ian Wright into one of the best strikers in the Premier League during his time at the club.
