Peter Hill-Wood Expects Arsene Wenger to Stay at Arsenal for 10 More Years

You know that Arsene Wenger has already become a legend of Arsenal. The veteran manager has recently said that he has no plan to retire in the near future. Rather he wants to continue his job until he enjoys it. Now, Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has revealed his hope that Arsene Wenger would stay at Arsenal for another decade. Here, it is noteworthy that Wenger has been at the current job since 1996.

The Canadian Press reported:

"He seems happy in his job here, it is very fulfilling for him," Hill-Wood told ESPN on Saturday.

"I can see him doing it for another 10 years, but of course that is up to him. He is showing no signs of slowing down, he's perfectly fit and he knows perfectly well my feelings about him."

Well, no body knows for how long Wenger would stay at Emirates stadium, but there is no doubt that he has been playing a fantastic job for Arsenal. He has been doing something that, I guess, hardly any other manager would have done for the Gunners. Arsenal is currently under huge debt in order to bankroll for the newly built Emirates stadium. Naturally, Arsenal can not have huge money to spend for signing star players. In this kind of situation any other coach would be complained about it or the team would have performed very bad in the competitions.

However, Arsene Wegner has been dealing with the situation excellently, by focusing more on the youth side and developing players. Wenger does not go for big money signing. Rather, he buys the potential players and then brings out the best of them at Arsenal. Thierry Henry is perhaps the best example of Wenger’s approach. Arsenal now has a very talented youth side and within next two or three years, I think, Arsenal would start dominating English premier league as well as Europe.
