Few people can claim to know Arsene Wenger very well, and fewer still can claim to be his elder brother. However, that is not the case with Guy Wenger, the brother of Arsenal manager, Wenger.
The Gunners manager has come in for criticism after another shambolic display by his players, which culminated in a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of German champions, Bayern Munich on Wednesday night in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League first knockout round first leg match at the Allianz Arena in Bavaria.
Guy Wenger, 71 has been speaking about the situation regarding Arsene’s time at the Emirates, and admits that the situation is not good for his brother.
Guy, who ran a family car spare parts business for more than 4 decades in the Wenger’s village of Duttleheim, in north-eastern France, told Mirror Sport that:
“I feel sympathy for Arsene. The situation is not good for him. “But it is his problem, not mine.” “I was not in Munich for the match, I watched on television.
“I don’t know if Arsenal can come back now.” he added.
There have been growing calls by fans and pundits that Arsene Wenger should leave the club in the summer so as not to ruin his legacy but the legendary Frenchman looked defiant in his pre-match press conference for the away game at Sutton for the FA cup fifth round clash.
Wenger’s current deal at the Emirates runs out at the end of this campaign, and has not stated his desire to stay or go, saying he will make a decision in the coming months.
