Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has been in his job for a good 19 years now, which included going through a long spell with no trophy to show but the club’s management chose to stick with him.
The same, however, cannot be said of the Swansea City management, which parted ways with manager Garry Monk two days ago after the team’s former player had a torrid start to the current campaign.
The move to sack Monk left Wenger at a loss as he claims Monk has instilled good stability at the team and the management should have been patient with him.
“It surprised me as he had done a good job last year and, until now, Swansea have shown good stability.
“Why do managers lose their jobs so quickly? The modern world is more impatient, it is always down to the people who run the clubs.
“Public opinion often runs in the present and is very emotional. You could say clubs need to be stronger than ever to resist that, but at the end of the day, it’s down to people on the inside to judge whether you are competent or not.” Wenger is quoted as saying on Mirror.
Monk was on his second season at the Swans’ helm. He had a good first year but in the current campaign, he has led the team to just three wins in the 15 matches played so far.
