Arsene Wenger, the manager of the English football club Arsenal may quit after 2016-17 season is over says Arsenal’s FC club legend Ian Wright.
Wenger is out of contract after this season and he is yet to agree to a new deal amid the growing anger among Arsenal fans who feel he has failed to make the club a worthy challenger for this season’s title.
Arsène Wenger has been the manager of Arsenal since 1996, making him the club’s longest-serving manager and most successful in terms of major titles won. Despite his achievements, the last couple of years have been tough on Wenger and many fans feel it’s time he threw in the towel.
It has been 13 years since Wenger last led Arsenal to the English title and some supporters believe it is time for him to go.

Wright, who played under Wenger from 1996 to 1998, had dinner with the 67-year-old on Thursday and revealed the end could be in sight after 21 years with the north Londoners.
“I was with the boss last night, and if I’m going to be totally honest, I get the impression that that’s it,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 live on Friday.
“I was with him for a few hours. He didn’t say to me, ‘I’m leaving at the end of the season’, but I get the impression, looking at him, that that’s it.
Wenger has won three Premier League titles and six FA Cup’s since arriving at Arsenal in 1996. At the moment Arsenal sit fourth in the League table and host Hull on Saturday looking to avoid a third successive defeat.
