Arsenal have gone through a roller coaster ride this season and with each dip, Arsenal fans have vehemently called for the sacking of Arsene Wenger. However, as the Gunners claw their way back into the top four to maintain their place in the elites of Europe, the much ridiculed manager has welcomed the idea of staying on with Arsenal beyond his current contract that runs till next summer, reported the Daily Mail.
Arsenal were dumped out of the Champions League by current tournament finalists Bayern Munich, albeit on the away goals rule. The Gunners have lost just one game in the last two and a half months and if Wenger can deliver more of the same, the fans would be glad to see their manager of 17 years for much longer.
“I want to stay if I do well and if I consider, or the club considers, that I do well, that is all,” the Gunners manager said in a recent press conference. “I want this club to do well, that is my basic feeling. We have gone through a period that was very sensitive, we are coming out of it now, in a much stronger position financially. For the rest, my own person is less important, what is important is the future of the club.”
The 63 year-old has been heavily linked with cash-rich PSG, but when questioned about the rumours of a move to the French capital, Wenger replied, “I have answered this question already. I respect my contracts.”
The Arsenal board have always stood strong with their manager, although Wenger will have to splurge in the transfer window to strengthen his squad next season to pacify the fans and break the club’s eight season long trophy duck.
