Arsene Wenger is reported to have told Arsenal players that he will step down as Arsenal boss at the end of the season. According to Italian football journalist Tancredi Palmeri, the Frenchman has informed the team members about his decision but has yet to have a meeting with the club’s board to inform people running the club as well.
Arsenal are reported to have offered Wenger a two-year contract extension although the Frenchman seems intentioned to part companies with the North London club after spending over 20 years with the Gunners.
Wenger’s Arsenal will face Bayern Munich with the impossible task of subverting the first leg’s verdict as Bayern Munich trashed the Gunners 5-1 in an Allianz Arena clash three weeks ago. Arsenal was beaten with the same result on Tuesday evening so it is beated 10- 2 in aggregate.
Many Arsenal fans will celebrate this news although Palmeri insists that the club’s board has yet to be informed about Wenger’s decision and that “everything can still happen”.
