Arsene Wengeris to reject the chance of managing Real Madrid and will remain Arsenal’s manager.
Wenger has insisted that he will remain with Arsenal, despite the overtures of the Madrid presidential candidate Florentino Perez.
Now Wenger himself has assured Arsenal fans.
“There’s nothing to worry about, it’s not an issue for me,”
“I’m staying here. If that changes I will let you know, but don’t worry about that. It’s not an issue.”
Some fans have been calling for Wenger to leave, after going 4 years without a trophy. This prompted Real Madrid to believe that after years of trying to lure Wenger, that he would actually decide to leave Arsenal.
Hill-Wood was quick to defend Wenger after he was given a hard time at the shareholders meeting last week.
“I am not concerned about it,” said Hill-Wood
“Arsene is here and under contract (until 2011), and I am sure that is how it is going to remain.
“I think he is a big enough man to accept that a few people are not prepared to be reasonable.
The Arsenal fans are planning to sing Wenger’s name through-out the game on Sunday, and will let the Arsenal manager know that the majority are still behind him.
Hopefully we will see a few more banners – like the one in the picture – showing support for Wenger.
