Wantaway Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger has no arrangements to stop and wants to keep overseeing the Gunners until his last days, as indicated by West Brom manager Tony Pulis ahead of Saturday EPL encounter.
Pulis trusts the Arsenal supporters who are quick to see the 67-year-old’s rule end when his contract deal expires toward the end of the season could wind up sitting tight for an additional six years and doubts the Frenchman willingness to leave.
Wenger sets out for The Hawthorns under fans criticism to see him out of his 20-years reign with the Gunners when his contract expires this summer.
However, Wenger hasn’t won any away game against a Pulis team in seven years – and that 2010 achievement remains his only triumph in seven endeavours.
The West Brom coach and Wenger have been involved in series of run-ins throughout the years, yet, the 59-years-old Welshman offered his full support to the under-pressure Frenchman ahead of their top-flight clash at The Hawthorns.
“I get the feeling that Arsene most probably wants to be carried out in a box still managing a football club because that is the way he is,” said Pulis.
“He is football nuts. I really do think people at Arsenal have given him total trust. He will go down in history as the greatest Arsenal manager and I think he wants to manage for another five or six years by the sounds of it.
“I think he is a great manager and he has been fantastic. If you go back from when he started right through to a period of time where now people are complaining they haven’t won the championship for a period of time and that just get to a certain stage in Europe.
“He is still managing one of great teams in Europe and they could finish in the top four and win the FA Cup. That would be a real tail-off!”
Of his battles with Wenger, Pulis added: “‘It is just two competitive people getting on with their lives and having a bit of a scrap here and there.
“We will respect them. They are a top, top side – very talented. It is just about making sure you stay with them and stay in the game.”
