A lot of Arsenal fans are calling on manager, Arsene Wenger, to be sacked at the end of the season, but according to Petr Cech, that might be a terrible idea.
Arsenal is not having the best of Seasons. The Gunners are all but eliminated from finishing in the top four of the Premier League, which would automatically disqualify them from Champions League football next year – making it the second year in a row for them to miss Champions League. Their only hope is winning the Europa League, but Atletico Madrid is favorite to win that competition.
So in the eyes of many Arsenal fans, the season is all but over, and the person to blame is Wenger. The Frenchman signed a two-year contract at the end of last season, so at the end of this season, unless he’s fired by the board, he’ll stay another season. And with all that’s happened, Arsenal fans don’t want the club to wait until Wenger’s contract expires. They want him out as soon as possible – preferably, at the end of the season.
But according to Arsenal Goalkeeper, Petr Cech, pushing Wenger out may not be a good idea, simply because there is no way to guarantee that things will get better after he leaves.
“It’s hard to say because it has big advantages with the continuity of the club and everybody knows how the club operates,” Cech told BBC’s Premier League Show.
“It’s easy to say ‘we change this or we change that’, but we never know whether or not it works.”
“Many times it might work and many times it might not.”
