Arsene Wenger has overstayed his welcome at Arsenal.
That is according to the man who appointed him, former Gunners chairman Peter Hill-Wood.
Wenger is under increasing pressure after back-to-back 3-0 defeats to Manchester City in less than a week.
After being appointed in 1996, the Frenchman created a great legacy after three Premier League titles and success in Europe.
However, even Hill-Wood, who has been Wenger’s staunchest supporter, admits the time has come for him to step down.
“I clearly am not very happy about what is going on,” he told the Daily Star.
“I think that there probably ought to be a change of management.
“He has done fabulously well, it is just he has overstayed his welcome.
“I find it very sad because he was the great love of many and then it (overstaying his welcome) has destroyed it all.”
The odds on Wenger to be the next manager sacked have been dramatically slashed this week.
And Carlo Ancelotti, Brendan Rodgers and Joachim Low have all been linked with the Emirates role.
However, it appears likely Wenger will attempt to stay at the club until at least the end of the season.
