Arsene Wenger faces axe over declining Arsenal attendance?

Arsene Wenger faces axe over declining Arsenal attendance?”

"They are 33 points adrift of Manchester City and have lost 11 matches in the Premier League, that's too poor for a team like Arsenal", the 1997 CAF African Player of the Year added. They face Atletico Madrid in the semi-final but performances in the Premier League have been disappointing, with the Londoners failing to pick up a single point on the road in 2018.

No decision has yet been made about whether Arsene Wenger will remain in charge of Arsenal but the club are pressing ahead with transfer plans regardless, according to reports.

Their last defeat further compounded the Gunners woes and are on course for their worst EPL finish in a long time - a result that might jeopardise Wenger's position at the club this summer.

"He [Benitez] is exactly what Arsenal need", the former Anfield star said on the Jim White show.

"I heard Paul Merson talking on the Sports Breakfast, saying Arsenal fans want a certain style of play and want to see a team play expansive football".

"I only worked with him [Benitez] briefly, but he was bang on it".

Crowds at the Emirates Stadium have dwindled for the past four league matches, a trend which is expected to continue until the end of the season, with the Gunners' hopes of reaching the top four all but over.

"He is a calm manager but he's very assertive".

Retired Super Eagles striker Victor Nosa Ikpeba has urged Arsenal to sack "papa" Arsene Wenger if they must get back to where they used to be.

There are also doubts among Arsenal staff about the quality of Shkodran Mustafi and his suitability to Premier League football, with the German once again at fault against Newcastle.

As it stands, the Gunners will qualify for the Europa League group stages if Southampton do not win the FA Cup.
