Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has shocked fans by revealing that if manager Arsene Wenger leaves the club then it is likely he will follow the Frenchmen, according to Sky Sports.
Pressure has been slowly mounting on Wenger over the past season and it has now been four years since the clubs last peice of silverware, whichÃ‚Â came in 2005 withÃ‚Â the F.A cup. Arsenal were booed off at the Emirates Stadium last week in their 0-0 draw with Fulham, which at the time was their fourth 0-0 Premier League draw in a row.
With Arsenal out of Premier League title contention for yet another season, many fans believe it is time for the club to appoint fresh blood at the club with numerous top European clubs vying for Wenger to take over.
However, after Fabregas’ bombshell it is likely that the Arsenal board will think again about replacing Wenger in the summer. Fabregas told Catalunya Radio: “I have heard the rumours about Wenger leaving Arsenal for the past three years.
“If he left the club then of course I would consider my own future and whether I would leave the club. I am happy at Arsenal and I believe that we and Barcelona play the best football in Europe. But Wenger is a main part of that.”
Arsenal are already in the middle of contract negotiations with star players Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott and the loss of their captain would be irreversible for the club.
Fabregas has been out of contention with a knee injury sustained in the club’s 1-1 draw withÃ‚Â Liverpool in December, but is convinced the can overturn their recent form to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
Fabregas added: “I want to return by April and i still believe that we can finish in the top four and reach theÃ‚Â Champions League. But to do that the squad has to be united and fight in every match as if it were a cup final.”Ã‚Â
