Ian Wright thinks that Arsene Wenger will remain in charge at Arsenal after this season as majority shareholder Stan Kroenke is happy.

Wright has been vocal in his frustration at Arsenal’s lack of recent progress under Wenger, believing the time may be right for him to move on.

However, speaking to BT Sport, Wright said that he thinks Kroenke is happy making money out of Arsenal’s consistency.

“We found out there’s a two-year contract on the table a month or two months ago,” said Wright.

“He always sees his contracts out and signs a new one and I can’t see what will be different this time.

“Why would Kroenke sack a person who can double his money?

“It doesn’t seem like they’re worried about if Wenger wins the Champions League as long as he qualifies, or if he wins the league as long as he’s in the top four.”

It does look more and more likely that Wenger will stay on in charge, with the manager himself hinting that he would prefer to stay on and sign his new contract.
