With back to back 3-0 losses to Manchester City, first in the League Cup final and then in the Premier League, ex Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has urged Arsenal to end Arsene Wenger’s misery, at the end of the current campaign. The Gunners have been knocked out of the FA Cup already and lost the finals of the Carabao Cup, in recent weeks. They are out of the title race as well to win the top flight of English football and are fighting hard for a place in the top four. On the other hand, they face AC Milan in the next round of the Europa League, with the Serie A giants considered to be favourites based on overall form.
Due to this, the former England international has suggested that it is high time for the north London giants to end the misery of their longest serving manager and bring someone in who can do a better job.
Wenger has given all that he could and now things are getting out of hand, with the fans not happy with the way that things have planned out.
Carragher further added that these humiliating losses were only hurting the Frenchman’s legacy, who was trying his best to win more titles, though things were not going as per his plans.
Thus, in the best interest of both the club and the manager, it would be a wise decision to part ways and look for a change that can revive the hopes of the fans in the team and maybe motivate the players to do better as well.
It will be a tough call to take at present, though the Arsenal board will surely have to consider this option, based to the current set of results.
Maybe, just maybe, the tie against Milan could be the final nail in the coffin, if the Londoners end up putting a show like they did against Pep Guardiola’s side.
