Ian Wright has called on Arsene Wenger to make a decision regarding his future and accused the Frenchman of leaving Arsenal fans in “limbo”.
The Gunners cruised into the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday after hammering non-league Lincoln City 5-0, but discontent remains among the fans and there were protests against the manager before kick-off.
Wenger is currently mulling over a new two-year contract offer but former Arsenal striker Wright feels his indecision is harming the club.
“Everybody is waiting for something to happen and nothing is happening,” Wright said on BT Sport.
“If he is going to stay and then there is going to be a massive ‘get out’ or whatever is going to happen in the summer, let the fans know something because there is a kind of limbo vibe going around arsenal at the moment.
“What is going on with the manager? What’s going on with Sanchez? Who is singing contracts? Are they going to stay?
“You’re looking at Sanchez, right now, is he going to stay? Ozil, if the boss goes, is he going to go? Ozil, if the boss goes, he’s going to go. Oxlade-Chamberlain wants to leave, who else wants to leave?”
When quizzed about his future after the game, Wenger attempted to deflect the questions.
Wenger tried to repel questions about his future as Arsenal manager after watching his side reach the semi-finals.
He said: “After that (the 5-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich), you have to respond in the next game and have players who are solid mentally and united, so it is easier when you have already gone through difficult experiences.
“I think I have shown a lot of loyalty and my preference is to stay here and I have repeated this many times.
“This is not conditional, this is how I felt on the situation. I try to serve this club with complete commitment and I will do that as long as I’m here.
“I focus on my job and I let other people judge my performances. I am not to worried about the rest, I just focus on winning the next game and get this team to perform.”
