David Seaman: Arsenal board must do this with senior man (not Sanchez or Ozil)
By Will Butcher
David Seaman has urged Arsenal’s board to make a quick decision on Arsene Wenger and believes fans must be kept in the know over his future.
The Mail claims 67-year-old manager Wenger has told Arsenal that he intends to sign a new two-year deal with the club, as he enters the final three months of his Gunners contract.
Former Gunners goalkeeper Seaman told Alan Brazil’s talkSPORT Sports Breakfast show that the board must be left to make their own decision, but fans need to know what that decision is.
“It won’t be a disaster,” Seaman said on two more years of Wenger management, as quoted by Brazil’s personal Twitter account.
“It’s at the stage where he needs to make some other changes. If he is to stay at the club for another two years there’s a lot that needs changing. We need to know what is happening.

“It needs a decision, and it comes from the board. Don’t leave Arsene to make his own decision. Get it [the decision] out in the public and let us know.”

Wenger has been in charge of the north London giants since 1996, after previously managing French sides Monaco and Nancy, as well as Japanese outfit Nagoya Grampus 8.
However, Wenger’s future is in doubt with the Gunners, as they look in danger of finishing outside the top four of the Premier League for the first time in the Frenchman’s tenure.
Six losses in their last nine and league and cup encounters has seen the Gunners plummet down the Premier League table, and they now sit six points away from the top four in sixth place.
The Gunners will be hoping to put their dismal run of form behind them this weekend, as they play host to Pep Guardiola’s Man City in a match that could prove crucial come May.
Three points for Wenger’s side could see the Gunners climb back up to fifth place, if Jose Mourinho’s Man United drop points against West Brom at Old Trafford.
