Has the growing criticism against the Frenchman force him to quit Arsenal at the end of the season?
Under-fire Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he has made a decision on his future that he will announce soon.
Wenger was subjected to more vocal criticism from Arsenal supporters during Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom, while a plane sporting a banner calling for him to stand down flew over The Hawthorns at kick-off.
You will soon know,” he said. “Very soon, but I’m not necessarily worried about my future right now, when we are in a unique bad patch where we haven’t been for 20 years.”
Arsenal are now five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who face Manchester City on Sunday, while Manchester United can go above them by beating Middlesbrough and a victory for Everton over lowly Hull City would bring them level with the Gunners on 50 points.
“We take all responsibility. It’s obviously a big disappointment when you lose a game like that. We all have to take responsibility and prepare for our next games,” Wenger said.
“It’s very worrying because we are not used to that [four defeats in five] and overall we have a hell of a task now to fight back.
“We need to regroup and of course focus on the games coming up because there are many big games.
“Everybody goes away now [for the international break] and we have to recover and prepare for our end of season.
“We focus on analysing where we are not good at the moment and correct what didn’t work.”
