Wenger not embarrassed ?

arsene-wenger-after-bradford-matchArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has come under a lot of pressure in recent weeks for his side’s performances and after the Capital One Cup defeat to Bradford City on Tuesday evening, some are calling for the board to get rid of the Frenchman.

When you consider that Arsenal put a very strong side out and Bradford currently ply their trade in League Two, you can see why the Gunners faithful are frustrated. With a lot of Premier League clubs out of the tournament as well, it was a great chance for the North Londoners to end their seven year wait for a trophy.

But, they were knocked out after missing three penalties in a shootout and now know it is going to be tough to win any silverware this campaign.

Wenger would not criticise his players though and seemed to still be proud of them, despite such a poor performance.

“You feel embarrassed when you don’t give everything, I think they’ll be more disappointed and frustrated.”

It is now unsure what the future holds for the Arsenal boss as some want to see him leave, but others see him as the only man to take the club forward. The season hangs right in the balance and if they are not near the top four come the New Year, then there could be big changes made at the Emirates Stadium.

If we look at some of the betting for Wenger’s future, you will see that he is at 12/1 to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

You can then back him being in charge on the last day of this season at 2/5, or get odds of 7/2 that he will have left by the final game of the campaign.Pep Guardiola is now a 5/1 shot to be the next Arsenal manager.

There are sure to be plenty of talks between the board members about what is best for the club taking place over the next few weeks.
