Should Arsene Wenger stay or go? Read what Arsenal’s Legends have to say about him.

The pressure is mounting on Arsene Wenger.

After 20 years at the helm, the Arsenal fan base is torn over whether it is time for the Frenchman to leave the club or not.

Arsenal suffered back-to-back defeats to Watford and Chelsea before Saturday’s unconvincing 2-0 victory over relegation-threatened Hull.

The victory keeps them inside the top four, but the lack of a title challenge from a season that promised so much is disappointing some of the support.

But the doubts over his future are not just from the supporters – some of his most trusted former players also believe it is time for him to walk away.

So, is it time for Wenger to go? Or is there a few more years left in his reign yet?

“Personally, I do not think Arsene (Wenger) has to go,” said Henry, speaking to RMC.

“Does he have to change his tactics or his way of doing things? I do not know if he’s willing to do that.

“The work he has to do at the moment is difficult, because it is mental work. What I saw against Chelsea is a mental problem. I don’t want to go into details but that is why Arsene’s job is very complicated because it is a mental problem. And it’s not easy to manage.

“Every time Arsenal can put pressure on the leaders or put the pressure on others by being first, usually in that match, they lose and then you lose confidence and bad results follow. The problem is more mental than quality.”

Verdict – STAY

“I think it probably is time for change. We’ve reached the natural end of the cycle,” he said on Sky Sports.

“It has got stale here, there’s no doubt about it. You may have to be prepared to take one step back to take two steps forward.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he did decide to go.”

Verdict – GO

Speaking on Match of the Day, Wright said: “Well I got the tiredness right. The thing is, it was a question and answer, and it was a really good evening.

“The way the boss was speaking, talking about coming to the end, his demeanour, and the way it was going – it was my opinion. I cou
