Arsene Wenger puts Arsenal future in doubt

Arsene Wenger put his Arsenal future in doubt after saying  he will announce "very soon" whether he will remain at Arsenal after reaching a decision on his future.

The Gunners boss was speaking after a 3-1 Premier League loss at West Brom, a fourth league defeat in five matches.

The loss increased the pressure on the beleaguered Frenchman and left Arsenal facing the prospect of failing to finish in the top four for the first time since he joined the club in 1996.

"I know what I will do," said Wenger. "You will soon know."

The 67-year-old continued: "Today I do not necessarily worry about that. We are in a unique bad patch we never had in 20 years.

"We lose game after game at the moment and that for me is much more important than my future."

Wenger's contract expires at the end of the season but he has been offered a new two-year deal.

The unceratinty comes as some fans paid to have a fly past protest during the game at The Hawthornes. But West Brom boss Tony Pulis told Talk Sport Radio on Sunday, that he thought Wenger would remain at Arsenal. As Pulis pointed out - Arsenal can still qualify for the Champions League and win the FA Cup which wouldn't be a bad season.
