Beleaguered Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a decision to stay at the club, according to British media reports on Monday.
Wenger has been cryptic about his decision and when asked about it following Arsenal's 3-1 defeat at West Brom, he said: "I know what I will do in the future".
It had been thought that the experienced manager had chose to step down, but according to The Mirror, Wenger wants to stay with the Gunners and will put pen to paper on an extension to his current deal, which expires this summer.
It is hard to find a positive answer, though perhaps the Arsenal board have been unnerved by the difficulties endured by United since Ferguson ended his 26-and-a-half year reign in 2013 and are now simply too frightened of the potential consequences to tell Wenger that it is time to leave.
"Today, I don't necessarily worry about that".
The planes hovering above the Hawthorns represented the most dramatic moment in a series of protests by Arsenal fans which have encompassed several hundred marching to the Emirates ahead of home games against Bayern Munich and Lincoln City. "I'll be surprised if he goes", he told The Sun after his side beat Arsenal on Saturday [18 March].
Chelsea manager says his team will get even better
Moses limped out of Chelsea 1-0 win over Manchester United on Monday in an FA Cup quarterfinal tie played at Stamford Bridge. Youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave Everton lead in the ninth minute from a Tom Davis cross.
I believe, whenever Wenger is sacked, or chooses to resign, he should receive a very grand send off.
But the club have denied a claim in Monday's edition of German daily Bild that they have approached Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel as a possible Wenger replacement. That's not acceptable for Arsenal Football Club.
Plenty of fans will not be happy to hear there will be no managerial change in store for next season if the Arsenal board grant Wenger his wish and keep him on, however.
However there has always been a sizeable proportion of Arsenal fans who believe that Wenger, a three-time Premier League and six-time FA Cup victor, has earned the right to dictate the terms of his own exit, though until Saturday they had been less vociferous in making their views visible.
"As long as I'm at the club, whether for two more years, 10 more years or four more months, that will not be different".
They know if they announce Wenger's new contract right now, there will be a backlash, even amongst the die-hard Wenger supporters. Pulis had a more detailed explanation of their set-piece failings: "They mark [with] five players across the six-yard box and have two players who try and block your runners". It just went against everything that you would want as a manager. "It's more, it's not that", said the Arsenal boss, according to ESPN FC.
