Ian Wright has revealed that he spoke to Arsene Wenger on Thursday night and has the impression that Wengers’s era is coming to a close. “He actually mentioned that he is coming to the end. I have never heard him say that before,” said the 53-year-old.

“I get the impression that that’s it,” ex-Arsenal striker Wright told BBC Radio 5 live. “He looks tired. You just feel that he looks winded. I feel that he will go at the end of the season, “Wright added. He also said that the players have badly let him down following a string of discouraging display in recent days.

“If he does leave at the end of the season, there will be a lot of changes. They should have a long, hard look at themselves. He has been so faithful to his team, it has been misplaced.”

Arsenal appears to be losing it on the title hunt as race gets tougher. They lie 4th on the log with 47 points 12 behind leaders Chelsea .However, pressure still mounts basing on the fact that they lead Liverpool with just a single point and Manchester United with 2  points adrift.

The gunners are set to play Hull City at the Emirates this weekend and the tigers seem to have found their footing having beaten Liverpool last week. The gunners will be coming into this match with an aim of redeeming themselves after losing two league matches consecutively but who knows what Hull has stake.

Wenger has managed Arsenal for 21 years and won the last of his three Premier League titles in 2004.The 67-year-old French manager’s contract expires at the end of the season having been in control since October 1996.

Some fans have called for Wenger to leave, with one holding up a poster at Stamford Bridge telling the Frenchman: “Enough is enough. Time to go .”
