Arsene Wenger wants to stay at Arsenal beyond this season: Reports


Arsene Wenger wants to remain at the Emirates for another two seasons according to recent media speculation.

Reports from the Telegraph indicate that the Frenchman is on the verge of signing a new two-year contract with Arsenal, however, higher-ups at the club are still waiting to finalise the deal.

Although a 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night severely dented their hopes of finishing inside the Premier League’s top four, Wenger indicated to reporters that he had come to a decision on whether or not to stay at Arsenal.

“Don’t worry, I know what I will do in my future. You will soon know,” he said.

The Gunners now sit in sixth spot on the ladder and six points behind Liverpool and although Wenger is not convinced that the top four race will decide his future, he is focused on trying to turn things around in the late stages of the season.

“It will not necessarily be linked with that because I’ve done the top four 20 times. It’s more…I take a bigger perspective. It’s not the last result that will decide what I will do,” he said.

“We are in a unique bad patch that we never had in 20 years, we lose game after game at the moment and for me that is much more important than my future.

He also reserved judgement for the section of fans that had staged a protest over the situation at a recent FA Cup match with Lincoln City, and had a banner reading “No ­Contract #WengerOut”, flown over the Hawthorns on Saturday.

“Everybody in life is responsible for his own behaviour. I’m responsible for my own behaviour. I don’t judge other people. I give my best. As long as I’m at the club, whether for two more years, 10 years or four months, that will not be different,” Wenger added.
