Adams: Wenger couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag

20 May 2017, 03:30 | Charlene Valdez

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has stated his future will be sorted in a board meeting after the FA Cup final against Premier League Champions Chelsea.

Romelu Lukaku has gone four games without a goal but he could still become the first Belgian to win the Premier League Golden Boot, and the first player from a club outside the top four since Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink for Chelsea in 2000-01.

This year Arsenal must again rely on an upset to finish in the top four.

When pushed on whether that is when a decision on his future will be finalised he said: "Yes".

"In a football club today you have to employ people who can help you be successful".

"One of them is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players who have to come in, the renewal of contracts".

"There are many aspects to be discussed at a board meeting".

"Maybe one day I will be able to speak about that, but I don't question, at the moment, their focus and their determination because every game they turn up and give strong performances".


Growing discontent among Arsenal supporters this season has led to widespread protests for Wenger to leave his post, with planes being chartered to carry "Wenger Out" banners the latest way for Gunners fans to express their displeasure over the club's progression under his guidance.

Wenger's contract is up at the end of the season, so this weekend's match could be his last at Emirates Stadium.

"And they behave like they want to be at the club", Wenger said.

As if finishing below arch rivals Tottenham for the first time in 22 years wasn't bad enough, Wenger's bid to lead Arsenal into the Champions League for a 20th successive season is in grave danger heading into their last league game against Everton.

Wenger has simply parried off the negative comments from his former captain however, saying: "I do not give too much importance to what Tony Adams says". We wait to see if Arsene Wenger and Wayne Rooney are saying goodbye to the league, even if they still have cup finals to come.

Speaking of Arsenal star players, Alexis Sanchez will nearly surely leave the club if Arsenal fail to book their place in the Champions League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on his side's prospects of a top-four finish: "I am not a betting man".

Adams said that Wenger, under whom he won two Premier League titles and two FA Cups, "could not coach his way out of a paper bag".
