Arsenal to stick with Wenger

Share

Arsene Wenger insists there are no limits to Arsenal's ambitions after he signed a new two-year deal to continue as manager of the Gunners.

Most, if not all, managers are constantly at the mercy of their club's chairman and owners, however Wenger is in a unique position as he has the luxury of deciding his own future, and his decision to stay will infuriate the #WengerOut brigade who are desperate for the veteran gaffer to call it quits.

Wenger, 67, is set to sign a new two-year deal to extend his stay at Arsenal until 2019, with an official announcement expected from the club on 31 May.

Meanwhile, several players are expected to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer after a subpar season which saw Arsenal fail to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Adams retired in 2002 after he and Wenger led Arsenal to a second Premier League and FA Cup double in five seasons.

"A few months later, me and my boys and some other kids, I'd taken them to the park and we're going home". Even Ian Wright, who has often been critical of Wenger this season, has now said that the Board really have no choice but to keep him on for at least one more campaign to pinpoint a proper replacement, although he is not so sure that Wenger will accept.

"That's what I want to see because raising your game for one day is one thing, but everybody is waiting for that to be done over 38 games".

"We live in a very competitive world where you need the support of the owner as well. We have played some games in a hostile environment and I never accept that".

"I just said: 'Good luck for the season, Arsene".

Wenger also has to secure the futures of Arsenal's key players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, whose contracts expire at the end of next season.

"That's why I think he'll hold on to Arsenal".

"For me, the contract does not have special meaning but, because of the debate, maybe I should have sorted that out earlier".

It is the opposition of fans which has concerned Wenger most but after winning nine of their last 10 games and lifting the FA Cup for a 13thtime, there is a more positive atmosphere around the club.

"As an Arsenal fan, and as a guy who had Arsene as a coach and have maximum respect for him, I'm happy to see him at the club".

"But, at Arsenal, he's got total dominance".
