Legendary ex-Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has reacted to growing reports of his potential return to the helm at Emirates Stadium following talks of an imminent sack of current boss, Mikel Arteta.
The French gaffer left North London in 2018 after 22 years in charge, enduring sparing success in latter stages of his stay, but may likely make a return to the Emirates Stadium this winter following the poorest start to a premier league season under Mikel Arteta, with the Gunners condemned to six defeats already, a draw, managing just 4 wins in eleven games and placed 15th on the log with just 13 points from a possible 33.
Wenger has reportedly been identified by Arsenal owner, Stan Kroenke as the likely man to turn the club’s lot around with resources (personnel) available currently at the Emirates Stadium.
Speaking to French media outlet, L’Équipe yesterday on the reports making rounds, the 71-year-old Frenchman disclosed he’s had talks with Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke, suggesting possibilities of a return to North London.
“Its been a difficult period for the club. I know that, I’ve spoken with him [Kroenke], we believe in same thing, that is lifting the team” He said.
“I know how bumpy it can get, especially for Mikel [Arteta], starting like this with the club he played for”
“We want to see the club rise again, and i think that’s what we all have in common” The iconic manager concluded.
Arsenal owner, Stan Kroenke is yet to issue any affirmation to growing reports of Wenger’s return to Arsenal, but is said to have set a deadline for Mikel Arteta to turn the club’s fortune around.
Gunners fans watched with much dismay on Sunday as a ‘tactical’ Jose Mourinho Spurs edged their beloved club at the Tottenham Stadium, with the Gunners struggling to find the cutting edge throughout the game.
‘Shambolic’ Arsenal found themselves a goal down in 13 minutes after Spurs’ danger man Son Heung-Min was afforded too much space to curl in a long range effort, while Harry Kane doubled the lead after Spurs broke through a loose ball at the stroke of half-time to compound Arteta’s woes.
The Gunners will make a trip to Ireland on Thursday for a clash against Dundalk for their final group stage match, before a must-win encounter against Burnley on Sunday at the Emirates Stadium.
