Ahead of the FA Cup Quarter Final game against Lincoln City on Saturday, Arséne Wenger has admitted in his press conference that the fan’s opinion could play a factor in whether or not he remains at the club in future.
Wenger’s current contract expires at the end of the season, but reportedly has a new two-year, £10 million a year deal on the table from the Arsenal board. However, he will not make his ultimate decision until then.
Arsenal fan’s staged a protest against the club (and Wenger’s current contract situation) prior to their humiliating 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich – 10-2 on aggregate – on Tuesday night.
In his press conference, Wenger admitted [regarding the fans]:
“Of course you consider everything. It won’t be the most important factor, but I will consider it of course.”
“I work very hard for 25 years to make the fans happy. I understand they are not when we lose.”
“I don’t want to judge that. I am not able to. I’ve said many times you have to accept different opinions.”
“I don’t work for my image. I work for the club with full commitment. How will I be judged? It’s not too much my problem.”
“I think I have shown since I am here that I love this club, that I’m loyal to this club and I make the right decisions for this club, and I will continue to do that, in respecting the values that are vital to me.”
