Ar­se­nal CEO needs ‘time’ for Wenger’s con­tract

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

VAT­I­CAN CITY (AP):

Ar­se­nal will deal with man­ager Arsene Wenger’s fu­ture “in our own way and in our own time”, club CEO Ivan Gazidis said yes­ter­day.

Wenger’s con­tract ex­pires at the end of this sea­son, his 21st year with the club.

“He’s been clear and we’ve al­ways been clear. That’s a mu­tual de­ci­sion as to how long he’ll con­tinue. Both need to be on the same page on that,” Gazidis told The As­so­ci­ated Press on the side­lines of a Vat­i­can con­fer­ence on faith and sport.

For many fans, the 66-yearold Wenger has been the only man­ager they’ve ever known at Ar­se­nal. The Lon­don club is play­ing in the Cham­pi­ons League for a 19th con­sec­u­tive sea­son un­der Wenger, but the French­man has not guided Ar­se­nal to the Pre­mier League ti­tle since 2004.
