Wenger accused of outstaying Arsenal welcome

Arsene Wenger has been accused of outstaying his welcome at Arsenal by Peter Hill-Wood, the man who appointed him back in 1996.

Arriving in England as a relative unknown, the Gunners could never have imagined that 22 years later they would still be working under the guidance of the long-serving Frenchman.

Wenger has proved to be a shrewd addition, with three Premier League titles and seven FA Cup triumphs secured during his reign, but the general consensus among a growing number of Arsenal supporters is that a change in the dugout is required.

“I clearly am not very happy about what is going on,” Hill-Wood, who stood down at Emirates Stadium in 2013, told the Daily Star.

“I think that there probably ought to be a change of management.

“He has done fabulously well, it is just he has overstayed his welcome.

“I find it very sad because he was the great love of many and then it [overstaying his welcome] has destroyed it all.”
