Arsene Wenger, with an recent interview with the NBC news, stated that he “would return if they needed help” but also added “but I don’t think they will”.
Wenger left Arsenal in what was considered to be the golden era of football in where he won the gunners the premier league title 3 times. He also won them the FA cup a record 7 times, most by any manager during his years as the boss at Arsenal.
But while the gunners have been struggling to keep the form they showed under Wenger through Unai Emery and now Mikel Arteta, Wenger did place his confidence in the new Arsenal boss and instilled that he has what it takes to “make it to the top and bring the best out of players”.
He stated “Usually you have to work maybe 10 years before you get a job this big but Mikel was lucky to get this big job on his first management, because he was a previous player and was close to the club” and also predict that Arsenal however will turn their fortunes around with Arteta as the boss and that they will be back on top fighting for titles where they belong.
However, recent form and results for Arsenal under Mikel Arteta has been worrying as Arsenal lost most of their starting matches in the new 2021/2022 Premier League season before getting a hold and managing a scrappy victory in their last two matches, their worst start to the league in recent history.
All the speculations now has Arsenal fans wondering if they were right to force Wenger out of Arsenal before, his champions league finishes were also taken for granted all while wenger was not financially backed and played with an average squad for the later part of his tenure at Arsenal.
Arsenal faces their arch rivals Tottenham this saturday in what could be a make or break game for Arteta.
