Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, believes that Arsene Wenger was sacked by the club and not leaving through resignation.
Wenger confirmed on Friday in a statement issued on the club’s website that he would bring his 22-year reign at the club to an end at the end of this season, but Wright is convinced there’s more to Wenger’s exit from the club.
“Arsene Wenger is a man of principle, honesty and integrity – that is why I am convinced he has been sacked and not resigned,” he wrote in his column for The Sun.
“For all the vitriol and abuse thrown at him, Arsene has never been a man to walk out before the end of a contract.
“It is a sad situation that it’s come to this and I don’t suppose we will ever find out who is responsible, because they will hide behind each other.
“One day he is doing a press conference with no hint of this, the next he’s gone. It doesn’t add up.
“But Arsene can go with his head high. That’s why, whatever the results, it is imperative he gets the send-off a true Arsenal and football legend deserves. We all owe him so much.”
Wenger won 10 major trophies (Three Premier League titles, seven FA Cup triumphs) and coached the Gunners in more than 800 Premier League games.
