Pires expects Wenger to stay at Arsenal long-term

Former Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires has no doubts that current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be at the club for a long time, ESPN reports.

Wenger has been at the Arsenal helm for 15 years and has suffered some horrendous criticism this season after the Gunners’ disastrous start. Arsenal have regained form and look like making a real push towards the top four, but after a recent interview with French magazine L’Equipe, Wenger admitted that he could consider his future at the end of the season.

Pires served under Wenger for his whole Arsenal career and believes that his former manager will die at the Emirates Stadium, much like Auxerre boss Guy Roux or Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The Frenchman also believes that the trouble Wenger had at the start of the season is something every club goes through.

‘It has calmed down now and things are more relaxed for Arsene. In August, he lost three important players for the club and I think that was a shock for Wenger. And for the fans too, of course. Every club in England has a period of crisis. This is football, especially when you play for the big teams’, Pires said.
