Keown: Wenger Has Never Had It This Worse

share on:

Martin Keown a former Arsenal defender has branded the 5-1 humiliation at the hands of Bayern as Wenger’s lowest point.

Arsenal went into the break level on 1-1, but conceded four goals in the second half to lose 5-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Wenger’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season and so might his 21-year association end with the Gunners.

Keown concedes major changes could be afoot, he insists he would never call for Wenger to be sacked.

“I can’t ever say that I’d like to see him go when you’ve won things,” he said on BT Sport. “He’s almost my footballing father. You do things as a family.

“But he’s an intelligent man and this is obviously his lowest point ever.

“Should he be protected from himself? This is a massive low point for him and will only bring forward the change that looks ever more likely.

“I think it will be him that makes the decision. The realisation [is]… he’s probably going to have to hand the reins over to someone else.”
