Wright: Wenger has confided in me over Arsenal future

Date published: Friday 10th February 2017 8:26

Ian Wright has claimed that Arsene Wenger told him that his time at Arsenal is “coming to the end”.

The Frenchman has yet again come under increasing pressure from a section of the Gunners fans with the club 12 points off the summit of the Premier League and seemingly heading for another year without title glory.

And Wright, who says he spoke to Wenger on Thursday night, reckons that the 67-year-old will call time on his Arsenal reign at the end of this season.

“I was with the boss last night and if I’m going to be totally honest I think that’s it,” Wright told BBC 5 Live.

“I was with him for a few hours last night and we’re talking and obviously he didn’t say to me ‘I’m leaving at the end of the season,’ but I just get the impression looking at him that, you know, that’s it.

“I think that’s it. He actually mentioned while we were talking last night that it’s coming to the end. I’ve never heard him say that.

“He looked winded, like someone who has whopped him in the stomach.

“Do I feel he will go at the end of the season? I think he will.”
