Thierry Henry says Wenger will stay, Alexis could leave Arsenal


Former Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry, has said he expects Arsene Wenger to continue as manager of the club, but admits Alexis Sanchez could quit.

The futures of Wenger, Alexis and Mesut Ozil, have dominated newspaper pages all through the 2016/2017 season.

Wenger’s contract runs out at the end of the season, while Alexis and Ozil have 12 months left on their current deals.

“For me, it is a tricky one. People are talking about the future of Arsenal and someone asked me if Arsene was going to be there next season. I said ‘yes’ because I would like to think if he wasn’t going to be there and he knew about it, he would have said so people could give him a proper goodbye. That’s why I think he is going to stay.

“Where you go from that now is who’s going to stay, who is going to come and we still don’t know if he is staying. I think he will but it hasn’t been said properly.

“I think at one point, the board could have come out and clarified the situation properly with Arsene and other players, that would have been a bit more helpful in terms of what the fans were thinking. We would have had an idea of what was happening but it is very much like Arsenal to not say what is happening right up until they make a decision. I’m sure we won’t hear about it right up until the final of the FA Cup,” the club’s all-time leading goalscorer told Sky Sports.
