Wenger got ‘please go in peace’ £9million to leave at the end of season

If you think that Arsene Wenger decision to leave at the end of the season was arrived at on a platter, then you are very wrong.  It has now been revealed that the Frenchman who is still having a year contract left was handed a £9million please go in peace cheque to make the agreement come to pass.

The Frenchman announced on Friday that he was leaving the Emirates this summer after 22 years in charge of the club.

The 68-year-old claimed it was ‘the right time for me to step down’, but it now emerges that he was forced out under pressure from the US owners.

Instead Wenger lost the support of owner Stan Kroenke, who decided to act ahead of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid next week.

Wenger had no intention of leaving the club, forcing them to pay off the final year of his salary in full.

Having missed out on Champions League football this season and way off the pace in the league, the Gunners need to win the Europa League to return to the top table of European football.
