Wenger refuses to commit himself to Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has refused to confirm that he will extend his stay at the Emirates beyond his current contract’s expiration in 2014. Earlier this week, chief executive Ivan Gazidis claimed that the club would soon be offering a new deal to the 62 year old Frenchman.

But according to football.co.uk, Wenger, who has been in charge of the Gunners since September 1996 will not be drawn on making a decision at this stage.

“I’m an Arsenal man,” said Wenger. “I think I’ve always shown that. I have to consider if I do well or not. If I don’t do well, I have to consider my future. At the moment we are not there. Two years is a long time in my job. I just want to do well for the club as long as I can and accept all the rest.”

Wenger had much early success with the Gunners, winning three league titles, four FA Cups and reaching the Champions League final. However, since that final FA cup triumph in 2005, he has failed to guide his side to a trophy and last season, came under pressure from his own fans for some of his decision making.

Wenger is currently preparing his side for the visit of bottom of the table Southampton to the Emirates, with the Gunners looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season and continue their record of being the only team in all English divisions not to have conceded a goal.

I'd live to know how the board can even think about offering Wenger a contract. He hasn't won anything in 8 years. Time for a change. He needs to go.

I'm sure if Arsen win's nothing this season he will have the decensy to give up and retire .

Big deal. Wenger always leaves it late. Move along now, just another pointless filler here.
