Arsene Wenger paid £11 million to leave Arsenal

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, will receive a £11million pay-off to leave the club at the end of this season.

The Frenchman confirmed he would be stepping down after this campaign, despite having one year left on his current contract.

According to Dailypost, The 68-year-old claimed it was “the right time for me to step down”, but it has emerged that he was forced out by pressure from the US owners of the club.

According to The Sun UK, “Wenger did not want to leave the club he loves, so the Gunners were forced to pay the final year of his salary in full.

“Arsenal are desperate to get back in the Champions League and hope the announcement will galvanise disaffected fans before their showdown against Atletico Madrid.”

The Arsenal hierarchy has already begun the search for a replacement.
