Arsene Wenger will decide his future as Arsenal manager with the club’s board in full support of the Frenchman.
At the beginning of the campaign, the Gunners were favourites to win the Premier League title – their first since 2004 – but a terrible loss of form since the new year has seen them slip to third place and they now trail Leicester City by 11 points.
Arsenal now need a miracle to win the title and defeat at home to Watford on Sunday afternoon also saw them knocked out of the FA Cup.
Wenger takes his side to Barcelona this week to face Europe’s best side, knowing that his chances of defeat are extremely high as they trail 2-0 from the first leg.
As a result, many fans are calling for his departure but the Telegraph believe that Wenger holds the key to his own destiny.
After two decades at the club, Arsenal’s board will allow Wenger to decide his own fate as manager and that decision will be made depending on whether he is confident about his ability to create a positive atmosphere around the club again.
Almost a decade passed as Arsenal went without a trophy and the pressure on Wenger to quit was almighty, but that was relieved by two FA Cup successes in 2013 and 2014.
However, calls for his exit have been reignited following the Gunners’ collapse in the past month in a season that should have seen them winning the league title.
