Wenger Certain of Future at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has “no doubt” he would still be the manager of Arsenal next season despite pressures from the club’s supporters to end his 20-year stay with the north London side.

A run of just two wins from their last nine games in all competitions has seen the Gunners knocked out of the Champions League last-16 for a sixth successive season and exit the FA Cup in the quarter-final, losing to Watford at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal’s dismal form has severely dented their hopes of ending their 12-year wait for the Premier League title, as they trail leaders Leicester City by 11 points with a game in hand.

“I have no doubt because I am committed. When I do something, I do it 100 per cent. I’m always committed to give my best as long as I am at the club… That’s all I focus on,” Wenger told British media when asked if he would be Arsenal manager next season.

“What is the most important is that I give my best every day… I don’t worry too much about all the rest, what people say. My future is my future. I don’t master that more than you.”

Wenger, who has a year left on his contract, would hope his side can pick up back-to-back league victories for the first time since mid-February when they host Watford on Saturday.

The 66-year-old would start the final year of his current contract at the end of the season, but with Arsenal sitting in third in the Premier League table and having experienced recent elimination in both the FA Cup and Champions League, Wenger is facing increasing pressure from fans over his future.

Some have resorted to bringing signs and banners to matches calling for Wenger to leave, while others have booed the team during their recent dismal run of one win in eight matches.
