Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes Arsene Wenger could stay at the club for another decade, according to a report in the Daily Star.

Wenger is currently celebrating 20 years in charge of Arsenal and there are concerns in some quarters that this could be his last season at the club. His current contract expires at the end of the season and he is yet to indicate if he will sign a new deal or not.

The French man has revealed that he is willing to wait until the end of the season before making a decision on his future and some reports claim he could step down when his contract expires if things doesn’t work well for him this season.

However, Arsenal legend Keown is of the opinion that the manager can still stay at the club for another decade.

Former Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson spent 26 years at Old Trafford and Keown believes Wenger will be interested in beating his former rival’s record.

“He probably looks at Sir Alex Ferguson’s 26 years at Manchester United and thinks he might beat that,” he told the Daily Mail .

“Ferguson managed in 810 Premier League games and Wenger is on 758, so he could beat that.

“Football every day is his life. He is in the middle of a fight and he will fight for another 10 years if he can.”

Wenger’s future is in his hands, he could sign a new deal at the club which will extend his stay beyond the current campaign but we think it is almost impossible that the French man will spend another decade at the Emirates.

However, if the boss wants to stay longer, he needs to start winning trophies as soon as possible because the fans might start calling for his head if things don’t get better.

Arsenal are already preparing for Wenger’s exit and have lined up AFC Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe as his potential replacement should he decide to leave.
