Arsene Wenger has said he has made a decision on his Arsenal future and that he will reveal it “very soon”. The Frenchman was speaking after the 3-1 defeat to West Brom at the Hawthorns (via Twitter).
It was a terrible performance from the Gunners against West Bromwich Albion. The 3-1 defeat – two of which from the same man Craig Dawson via corners – saw the anti-Wenger protests step up to a new level.
In almost comical scenes, two planes flew over the ground before kick-off, one with a pro-Wenger banner, the other with an anti-Wenger one. The defeat certainly aided the latter’s argument.
After the match, Wenger spoke to reporters at his post-match press conference and dropped a bit of a bombshell. Despite claiming earlier in the week that he had not made his mind up on his future, the Frenchman seems to have decided.
“Don’t worry, I know what I will do in my future,” Wenger told the press. “You will know very soon.
“You will see but today I do not worry about that. We are in a unique bad patch that we never had in twenty years.

“We lose game after game at the moment and that to me is far more important than my future.”
Those are some very interesting quotes from Wenger and in contrast to what has been reported in recent weeks. It seems as if the Frenchman has made up his mind on his Arsenal future and if the last few weeks are anything to go by, it would be incredible to see him in charge of the club next season.
