Arsenal legend Martin Keown thinks that his former manager, Arsene Wenger, will put pen to paper on a new deal this season, despite calls for the Frenchman to leave.
The man who has been in the hotseat in north London for two decades watched with the Chelsea fans at Stamford Bridge as the runaway league leaders were impressive 3-1 winners, leaving the Gunners 12 points adrift in the Premier League title race.
The 67-year-old’s current contract runs out at the end of this season, however, there are reports that he will be handed new two-year deal in the March international break.
Speaking after goals from Marcos Alonso, Eden Hazard and former Gooner Cesc Fabregas had put his beloved side to the sword, Keown, who made over 370 appearances for Arsenal winning three Premier League titles and four FA Cups, admitted that he thought his old boss would be getting a new deal.
The former Leicester man feels that Wenger will be the one who decides when to call it a day.
