Arsenal chairman wants Wenger to extend contract

Arsenal Chairman Peter Hill-Wood has called on manager Arsene Wenger to extend his contract with the Gunners, according to the Metro.

The Frenchman was heavily criticised by some sections of his own supporters when the north London outfit were going through a poor spell of form, but Wenger has turned Arsenal’s fortunes around and the Gunners are currently placed third in the Premier League table.

And Hill-Wood believes that Wenger, who is already committed to the club until the summer of 2014, is the right man to take Arsenal forward in the future. He said: “For him to stay longer than that would be perfect. I can’t think of anybody better to run the team.” Hill-Wood added: “He has a young squad, with some excellent young players. He is building a young team with a great future and I am sure he would love to see them develop.”

Arsenal have failed to win a trophy in seven years, however Wenger has consistently guided his side into the Champions League and the Gunners look set to remain in Europe’s top competition next season. The Frenchman looks set to be given the funds to strengthen his squad this summer, with the likes of striker Lukas Podolski and defender Jan Vertonghen reportedly on his radar.
