Hill-Wood: Wenger happy as Larry


Peter Hill-Wood has dismissed speculation linking Arsene Wenger with a move away from Arsenal stating that the Frenchman is very happy in North London.

Speed-dialling his favourite red-top, the Daily Star, the old-Etonian pooh-poohed suggestions that Paris Saint German were on the cusp of stealing Wenger away from the Emirates by reasserting that the 63-year-old is under contract for another year.

“I think this is complete nonsense – in fact, I know it is complete nonsense,” said Hill-Wood.

When quizzed about the final year of Wenger’s contract being optional, the Gunners chairman continued: “That is news to me and I would certainly know if there was one.

“He is happy as Larry and the whole thing is complete rubbish.”

That, along with Wenger’s own denial, should just about draw a line under all the drivel that has been written in the last 48 hours.
