The Wenger Out brigade have never had a stronger voice than this season, although that camp are set to be disappointed according to bookmaker Sky Bet. They offer odds of just 1/4 that Arsene Wenger takes charge of the Arsenal first team next season, implying that the Frenchman is heavily likely to sign a new deal with the north London club.
A few weeks ago, it had seemed as though Wenger’s position was almost untenable and a 2-0 reverse at White Hart Lane saw increased calls for the long-serving manager to step down, although a change of formation and seemingly attitude among the players has led to a revival which is slightly too late to land a top four spot.
Wenger has ducked questions regarding his future in every press conference this season, although he’s just 1/4 to be Arsenal manager on 31 August 2017, with the same bookie offering 4/1 that he’s not in a managerial position. You can get 16/1 that he’s in charge at Paris Saint-Germain and 20/1 that he pops up at Monaco.
It appears that even if Wenger was to step down at Arsenal in a manager capacity, it’s heavily likely that he remains part of the club due to his long-standing affiliation. Indeed, since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down at Old Trafford, Wenger’s reign far exceeds any of his counterparts in both the Premier League and other Football League divisions.
Massimiliano Allegri is the 7/2 favourite to become the next manager of Arsenal, although the current Juventus manager might be a wanted man considering how well the Turin club have fared in the Champions League this season.
