Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger ha llevado al Arsenal a seis títulos de la Copa FA desde que se unió al club como entrenador en 1996.

Arsenal are “further behind than Arsene Wenger thinks”, says Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker.

Los Gunners vencieron al Chelsea para ganar la Copa FA el sábado, pero terminaron quintos en la Premier League y no jugarán la Liga de Campeones la próxima temporada.

El jefe Arsene Wenger, quien asumió el cargo en 1996, se reunió el lunes con el propietario del Arsenal, Stan Kroenke, para determinar su futuro.

Wenger acordó firmar un nuevo contrato de dos años, y el club hará un anuncio el miércoles.

“Arsenal have got a long way to go at the moment, they’re a long way behind,” Lineker told BBC Radio 5 live.

“If you ask me now whether Arsenal are going to be in the top four next season, I would say most probably not.”

‘Remarkable’ how Wenger decides future

Una temporada que ha traído tantas críticas para Wenger, de 67 años, terminó en la gloria de Wembley con una 13a victoria récord de la Copa FA para los Gunners.

But Wenger said the criticism he received this season in the build-up to the final was “a disgrace” he will “never forget.”

El francés reemplazó a Bruce Rioch en octubre de 1996 y su contrato actual expira este verano.

Lineker said he thought Wenger would be staying in North London, and said it was “remarkable” how the manager determines his own future.

“The only other example of a manager that decides when and where he goes is Sir Alex Ferguson, but he was still winning league titles.

“Arsene Wenger was still winning FA Cups and until this season he had always got in the top four, but now that’s changed.

“I just hope if and when he decides to go he kind of does himself because I don’t want people to feel badly about him and I hope he doesn’t spoil that.

“But I sense he’s going to stay anyway, so let’s see what happens.”
