Armory still trust Arsuene Wenger can capture droop yet instability waits The Guardian

“The Arsenal hierarchy remain steadfast in their support of Arsu00e8ne Wenger, despite the Champions League humiliation at the hands of Bayern Munich, and they believe he can pull the club out of their slump and prove he deserves to stay on as the manager beyond the end of the season.
Wengeru2019s critics were given more ammunition on Tuesday night when his team crashed to a 5-1 home defeat against Bayern in the second leg of the Champions League last 16 to exit 10-2 on aggregate. It was the seventh season in succession they had gone out of the competition at this stage and it added up to a fifth loss in the last seven games in all competitions.
There are numerous continuing issues behind the scenes u2013 some of which are linked to the uncertainty over whether Wenger will stay or go when his contract expires this summer. He has been offered a new two-year deal.
The search for a new academy manager to replace Andries Jonker, who left at the begi
ing of last week to become the coach at Wolfsburg, has been put on hold u2013 as Wenger would have the final say on the appointment u2013 while several members of the playing squad are considering their futures. Top of that list is Alexis Su00e1nchez, who will enter the final year of his contract in July and is believed to have a massive offer from a rival club on the table. It is this that has emboldened him to demand a non-negotiable pay rise at Arsenal to about u00a3250,000 a week.”
