I’m staying! Arsene Wenger commits future to Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reveals that he is going to continue at the Gunners beyond the summer

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he is going to continue his Arsenal reign beyond the summer.

The 64-year-old’s current Gunners contract is set to expire at the end of the season, with speculation suggesting that Wenger could call time on his decorated 17-year spell this summer.

I have given my word to this club and that I want to continue where I am

However, the Frenchman, who has led the north London side to three Premier League titles, revealed that he has committed his future to the Gunners for the foreseeable future.

“Look, I have said many times already, I have given my word to this club and that I want to continue where I am. That means to stay,” Wenger told beIN Sport.

Wenger has received the backing of his Arsenal squad despite a turbulent season which saw the Gunners’s title bid ended after heavy losses to Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton.

The north London club can still end the campaign on a high by securing a fourth-place finish and beating Hull City in the FA Cup final at Wembley in May.

Earlier this week, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud insisted the Gunners need Wenger to stay to continue to challenge for silverware.

“Of course we all want him [Wenger] to continue the adventure,” Giroud is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

“I’m sure that next season we can challenge for the title – I hope, right until the end [of the season] – and we need the coach. We need his experience. He must stay.”
