Arsenal is reportedly set to sack manager Arsene Wenger due to a persistent fall in attendances at their home games.
Attendance at the Emirates Stadium have continued to decline in the past four league matches, a trend which is expected to continue until the end of the season, with the Gunners’ hopes of reaching the top four all but over.
According to the Daily Mail, the growing number of empty seats is not going down well with the club’s hierarchy. Most board members believe it is enough grounds for the Frenchman to be shown the exit door.
Many of the no-shows are said to be season ticket holders, meaning that the club’s revenue is not impacted, but senior club figures have reportedly expressed concerns about the damage the boycott is doing to Arsenal’s global brand and commercial value.
