Gunners boss Wenger has spent 15 years with the club, but is facing his toughest test since joining them after they have suffered a long 6 six years since lifting a trophy. Their lack of trophies has resulted in key players leaving this summer, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas moving to Barcelona and Samir Nasri to Manchester City, whilst new replacements have yet to be brought in.
Arsenal were in touching distance of ending their drought when they reached the final of the Carling Cup last season, however a late goal from Birmingham City crushed all hopes of that happening, resulting in even more Gooners growing tired of Wenger’s policies.
Manchester United face Arsenal on Sunday at Old Trafford, and Ferguson believes that he would never allow his team to suffer from such a disastrous phase, but has admitted he respects the Frenchman for sticking by his ways.
“I wouldn’t have allowed that to happen. You know, I don’t contemplate these things,” said Fergie, who guided his side to a record 19th league title last season.
“Arsene has got his way and I’ve got my way and you do the best with what you believe in. And that’s what Arsene is trying to do. It is a different way of management.”
