Wenger confident of Arsenal stay

As he prepares to take charge of his 1,000th match as manager of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has insisted that there is no uncertainty about his long-term future at the club, Sky Sports has reported.

Wenger, who has been in charge since 1996, has not yet put pen to paper on a new contract, with his current deal set to run out at the end of this season. This has led some to speculate that the Frenchman’s long tenure could be over after the current campaign.


However, when asked about his future in the press conference ahead of Saturday’s vital Premier League game at Chelsea, Wenger told reporters that he was confident of extending his stay at the Emirates Stadium. He said: "I think so, yes.


"I want to do well, and the expectation level and the impatience is there. My commitment is full. I do not want to look somewhere else. I want to stay here. There shouldn't be any uncertainty at all. My desire is to stay."


Wenger also disputed the thought that the club has stood still since winning its last trophy in 2005. He added: "In 2006, we were in the Champions League final. Nobody speaks about it now, but it is still an achievement.


"It is not a trophy, but we did without conceding a goal in 10 European games and we only lost in the last 13 minutes of the Champions League. Can you say you have failed that season? I don't think so.


"We beat Real Madrid (in the second round) with Zidane and Beckham and all those players, on top of that we managed to stay in the top four (of the Premier League) that season, but nobody speaks about it. It is like we did nothing that season at all. Why? Because at the end of the season we don't parade with a trophy.’
