Former Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere, has claimed that the club decided to sack Arsene Wenger as manager, after 22 years in charge.
Wenger announced that he was stepping down in May this year, with few games of last season left.
The club at the time insisted the decision was mutual and staged a memorable farewell for the Frenchman.
But Wilshere, who left for West Ham this summer, insists that Wenger was fired.
Wilshere was in the final year of his contract at the Emirates, when Unai Emery was appointed as the new boss and quickly told him he would not feature regularly.
“They finally offered me a deal in January which I was ready to sign and then Arsene got sacked.
“It was strange, everyone was just shocked,” the England international told Sky Sports.
