Arsene Wenger will be sacked as Arsenal manager should Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote succeed in buying the Premier League club.
Wenger has been in charge of Arsenal’s first-team affairs since 1996, leading the Gunners to seven FA Cups, three Premier League titles, and a Champions League final.
Without a title-winning campaign since 2003-04, though, pressure has grown on the Frenchman to leave his position.
Wenger signed a two-year contract extension at the club at the end of the 2016-17 season, despite finishing fifth in the Premier League table. Should Dangote take over, he will end Wenger’s reign at the club.
“The first thing I would change is the coach,” Dangotem who has already outlined his early plans for Arsenal and its backroom structure, told Bloomberg.
“He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck.”
