Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has come out to say that his decision to step down at the end of the season was never a plan he wanted as the timing was wrong.
The 68-year-old Frenchman who has been in charge at the Emirate in the past 22 years is looking forward to guide his side to the final of the Europa League with a crucial crunch schedule against cup favourite Atletico Madrid in the semifinal.
Wenger insisted that the timing of his sudden announcement was not his call, but refused to go into any further details on who influenced his decision.
Mirror Sport quoted Arsene Wenger to say: “The timing wasn’t really my decision,”. “For the rest, I have spoken about it already.”
Wenger has survived heated pressure in the past few years with angered Gunners fans demanding a change, but the Frenchman claims that is just part of the emotional society of today.
The source further quoted him to say: “When people are unhappy, it isn’t always a majority,” “We live in an emotional society where people can express how they feel.”
