Wenger yet to make decision on Arsenal future
Wednesday 23 October 2013
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he still unsure if he will commit his long-term future to the club, the Daily Mail has reported, despite there being an offer on the table.
Wenger has been manager of the North London club for 17 years, although he has not guided the Gunners to a trophy in the previous eight, and with his deal ending at the end of this season, he will wait until he decides whether he is the right man to lead Arsenal to silverware before signing a new deal.
He said: ‘It’s not a question of my loyalty – I want to feel I can do well for this club. It’s as simple as that. I can build another new team, but haven’t got 17 years, that is for sure. I can build another team because in 17 years I had a few teams, but at the minute I’m looking at the short term. I will make a decision about the longer term later.’
Arsenal have made a good start to this season, taking 17 points out of 21 to top the Premier League after eight games, and although they lost to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday, are still in the running to reach the knockout stages of the competition.
