Tony Pulis believes Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be staying at the Emirates stadium for one more year.
Arsenal dropped to sixth on the table after losing 3-1 to Pulis’ West Bromwich Albion and could miss out on UCL football.
There has been speculations that Wenger could leave Arsenal, with his contract expiring in the summer, but Pulis disagrees with the notion.
“I’ll be surprised if he goes,” the Welshman told the media when asked to speculate on Wenger’s future.
He was probed further as to why he held that opinion and replied: “Because he told me.”
“I think he’s the greatest manager Arsenal have ever had. They could finish in the top four and win an FA Cup — that’s not too bad is it?” he added.
“I don’t think respect counts now. People live for today. If you’re asking me what Arsenal should or shouldn’t do I’m the wrong person.”
