The experienced Frenchman is now the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, while he is also currently the most successful having guided the north Londoners to three titles in his 18 years in charge of the Gunners.
Meanwhile, having just qualified for the UEFA Champions League for the 17th campaign in a row, and with an FA Cup final to contest against Hull City on Saturday, spirits are seemingly high at the Emirates as Wenger prepares to finally sign his new two-year deal.
But as much Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s stinging barb in The Guardian earlier this year about Wenger being “a specialist in failure” was uncalled for, it also hurt because it touched a raw nerve.
And so if the Gunners really do wish to ever get their hands on the title again, then they should seriously consider a change of manager as Wenger has clearly now taken the club as far as he can.
