If Wenger leaves, it's disastrous for Arsenal

Cape Town - Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright believes it would be disastrous for the club if manager Arsene Wenger decides to leave.

Wenger is due to meet with the board on Tuesday to discuss his future, with his current contract running out in a few weeks, and Wright hopes the Frenchman stays.

Many have implored Wenger to call an end to his reign at the Emirates Stadium, but Wright fears that the Gunners are not prepared for Wenger's departure.

"I've got a nasty feeling Arsene Wenger will walk away from the Arsenal job today – and leave the club totally in the lurch," Wright wrote in The Sun

"And you would have to say it would serve them right, because there has been absolutely no forward planning for the day when Wenger finally left the Emirates.

"The only way the board should have allowed him to run down his contract yet again is if they had private assurances from him that he was staying.

"Otherwise, it is total incompetence from the board to get to this stage."
