West Brom boss Tony Pulis has reportedly revealed that Arsene Wenger will remain as Arsenal manager past this summer, according to The Sun.
The Baggies chief was asked whether he thought the Frenchman would be staying at the Emirates Stadium ahead of next season, following Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at The Hawthorns in the Premier League, and responded, “I’ll be surprised if he goes.”
Then, when asked why he thought that, the 59-year-old added, “Because he told me.
“I think he’s the greatest manager Arsenal have ever had. They could finish in the top four and win an FA Cup – that’s not too bad is it?
“I don’t think respect counts now. People live for today. If you’re asking me what Arsenal should or shouldn’t do I’m the wrong person.”
Wenger, 67, admitted after the game that he had already made up his mind about his near future, with his current contract with The Gunners coming to a close at the end of the current 2016-17 campaign.
Fans have called for the Frenchman to leave this summer after their humiliating UEFA Champions League 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich, plus the fact his side have slipped down to sixth spot in the Premier League standings, following their fourth defeat in their last five outings.
