As the ‘Wenger Out Bandwagon’ keeps increasing the club’s second-highest shareholder Alisher Usmanov believes Arsene Wenger should begin the process of finding his successor.
Wenger, whose current deal expires at the end of the season, has spent almost 21 years as manager of the club and has yet to announce whether he will remain at the helm of affairs beyond the end of the current campaign.
“Some continuity is needed,” Usmanov said in comments reported by Bloomberg.
“This includes the need to prepare a successor for Wenger, but in a very respectful way.
“I can suggest that Wenger himself can prepare a successor.”
“I do not think that the coach alone is to be blamed for what is happening,” Usmanov said.
“I personally, unfortunately, am fully isolated from decision making in the club.
“All the responsibility for the fate of the club rests with the main shareholder.”
