Wenger linked with exit from Arsenal job

Long-serving Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move to Real Madrid as the pressure grows on current Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, according to The Daily Mirror. The Gunners are currently five points away from fourth placed Chelsea and are desperate to qualify for the Champions League again.

Wenger is one of two names on a shortlist drawn up by Madrid executives, as they look to prize away one of the best managers in the world. The Frenchman has spent 15 seasons in North London and delivered trophies for Arsenal, but has not won a trophy in six seasons now. Arsenal fans were vocally unhappy with his decision to substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain against Manchester United and many are becoming discontented with his stubbornness to dip into the transfer funds and spend big. Madrid have been interested in the Gunners boss since 2009, when Arsenal turned down an approach, and with pressure on Wenger in North London, he may fancy a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

Arsenal are not the same force they once were and Gunners fans were discontented with the club’s horrendous start to the season. Wenger drew criticism worldwide, but has managed to stabilise the club in a position where they are still pushing for the Champions League. Arsenal fans are not happy with the fact that Wenger does not have the Gunners in title contention and there are still calls for him to leave, most notably from Rwandan president Paul Kagame.

In a series of tweets, Kagame said: ‘I very much support Arsenal – but to be honest Wenger needs to coach another team now and Arsenal needs another coach. When a good team (players) and a good coach fail for long to deliver, one of them has to change, or even both!! The real/main danger is for anyone to get used to mediocre/lacklustre performance and/or results and accepts to live with it … or keeps finding excuses for it!!’
