Arsene Wenger Reminds Everyone He Knocked Back Big Teams to Stay at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has reminded everyone that he’s knocked back big teams to stay at Arsenal over his long spell at the club.

The Gunners manager is again under intense pressure, with Sunday’s 3-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City the latest setback to get people talking about his future.

Arsenal really struggled in that game, failing to get close to an impressive City team as they romped to the first domestic trophy of the season.

So you can understand why there’s yet more discussion involving Wenger and when his time at the Emirates will end.

He’s been in charge of the club since 1996 and signed a new two-year contract extension last summer, despite Arsenal finishing outside of the top four last term.

But, when faced with questions about his future at a press conference this morning, Wenger reminded everyone that he’s knocked back advances from several clubs to remain in north London over his time at the club.

So Wenger obviously feels like he’s due some loyalty from those fans who believe his time is up:

Arsenal currently sit sixth in the English Premier League table, and it’s going to be a tough task for them to break back into the top four considering they sit 10 points off rivals Tottenham in fourth.

They are out of the FA Cup, but do still have a chance of success in the Europa League.

That is if they can beat Italian giants AC Milan in the next round – which will be a very tough game when you look at the former of Rino Gattuso’s team.
