BetVictor offer 1/3 that Wenger steps down from his role as Arsenal manager after a spate of disappointing results
Arsene Wenger’s legacy at Arsenal seems to become more tainted with the passing of every game, with the Frenchman watching his Gunners team lose 2-1 at Brighton on Sunday.
This result followed hard on the heels of a League Cup final defeat against Manchester City, while Arsenal lost against the runaway Premier League champions a few days later at the Emirates.
Any prospect of the London side finishing in the top four now looks extremely remote and the vast majority of supporters want a new manager at the helm, with Wenger looking as though he’s passed his sell-by date by a long stretch.
Bookmaker BetVictor are expecting Arsenal FC to make a change this summer, whether Wenger wants to step down or not.
They go 1/3 that Wenger isn’t Arsenal manager when the 2018/19 season begins, although he does have another year left on his current contract.
You can get 9/4 with the same bookmaker that Wenger remains in charge for another campaign, which will be to the chagrin of the fans who are trying to make themselves heard in an increasing capacity.
BetVictor also have a betting market relating to the next Arsenal manager, with Joachim Low available at 3/1 to take charge at the London club, although the German national coach might not want to leave his current post in a hurry.
Carlo Ancelotti is a 7/2 poke to replace Wenger and he might be interested in returning to England to take charge at a club who have money to spend and a decent squad which could be shaped back into Champions League material.
Thierry Henry is a 6/1 chance and the Frenchman would clearly like to go down the management route at some stage, although perhaps this would come too soon for him, while Brendan Rodgers is a 10/1 chance.
Rodgers has previously been in charge at Liverpool and nearly won the Premier League title with the Reds, with Mikel Arteta available at 12/1.
