Arsene Wenger wants to quit Arsenal and take England job at the end of the seasonPublished September 29, 2016
Arsenal fans, it’s finally happening.
On Wednesday we brought you the news that the FA had mad another big attempt to convince Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to become the England manager at the end of the Premier League season, following Sam Allardyce’s departure on Tuesday (read earlier story here).
It’s widely known that that the 66-year-old Frenchman, was the FA’s number one target for the job, after Euro 2016, but Wenger made it clear he would break the final year of his contract at the Emirates.
Whilst at the time, the FA did not feel they could wait an entire season for Wenger to see out the remainder of his Arsenal contract, given the embarrassing events of the last 36 hours, they are willing to wait until the end of the season and appoint Wenger, in a bid to finally get things right.
And reports coming out of the press on Thursday suggest the timing is right, and Arsene Wenger is now willing quit Arsenal and take on the England job at the end of the season.
Whilst Wenger, has accepted that the time to quit North London will be at the end of the season, it’s believed that the Arsenal hierarchy are doing all they can to keep the iconic Frenchman at the club, and are set to offer the 66-year-old a mega contract extension to keep him at the Emirates.
It looks set to be an interesting couple of months for both England and Arsenal fans.
Would I take the England job? Well errr, apart from un-com-fortable expectations, super aggravation and the sack, it's quite attractive.
