The Emirates faithful are not happy with the Frenchman.
Following a 3-1 opening day defeat to Aston Villa and a failure to sign any big name players in the transfer market, Arsenal fans have turned on manager Arsene Wenger.
The 63-year-old was meant to be discussing the prospect of a new deal with chief executive Ivan Gazidis this year, with the Frenchman in the last 12 months of the current contract.
Yet the Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) have written to the club to try and persuade the hierarchy not to offer Wenger any new deal as yet.
“Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has spoken of the intent to offer Wenger a new contract. We believe this is inappropriate” the AST statement was quoted by BBC Sport.
“The entire focus must be on using the remaining days of the transfer window to strengthen the team significantly.
“The fact that there is money available for squad-strengthening is not disputed. The AST’s independent analysis suggests that the amount is somewhere between £70m-£100m.
“A decision on whether to offer an extension to the manager’s contract, which ends in May 2014, should only be taken following the closing of the transfer window and assessment of the team’s performances.
“Considerable improvement must be shown for us to be convinced this should happen.”
Gunners fans have had to watch as players such as Gonzalo Higuain and Luiz Gustavo have bypassed north London, whilst the long-term pursuit of Liverpool’s Luis Suarez appears to be going nowhere.
This lack of purchases, coupled with a poor start to the season from the team, means that supporters at the club are becoming disillusioned with Wenger’s tactics – particularly when it is considered that Arsenal have not won a trophy since 2005.
