BREAKING: Arsene Wenger To Resign As Arsenal Football Coach

Arsene Wenger has announced he would be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, thereby bringing his 22-year stay in charge of the Gunners to an end. The club say a successor will be appointed “as soon as possible”.

The 13-time English top-flight winners are sixth in the league and set to miss out on a top-four finish for the second consecutive season.

The Gunners now depend to earn a berth in next season’s Champions League by winning the Europa League.

Arsenal face Spanish side Atletico Madrid, who are second in La Liga, in the Europa League semi-finals, with the first leg on Thursday at Emirates Stadium.

“After careful consideration and following discussions with the club, I feel it is the right time for me to step down at the end of the season,” Wenger said in a statement posted on the club’s website.

With this announcement, the Frenchman departs a year before his latest contract was due to expire.

The 68-year-old Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups for the north London side.

They have not won the title since 2004.
