Arsene Wenger’s future remains a topic of constant debate and speculation among fans and media alike, but the Arsenal manager is clear in his mind of his intentions.
The Frenchman signed a two year contract in May, after winning the FA Cup final against Chelsea, and as far as he’s concerned he’s going to see it out.
In a repeat of the line of questioning we got all through the final third of last season, Wenger was asked if he’d still be in charge next year.
“My contract clarifies that,” he said. “Did I ever walk away? Never. Why should I change?
I am always committed. I am here for 21 years. So in every single decision I make what is right for the club.
“Do I stay for one year or ten years it is exactly the same.
“If it is me in charge or somebody else you can only do what is best for club. That is what you try to do.
“That has nothing to do with my personal situation.”
Of course there’s nothing to stop the board making a change in the summer if they feel it’s required, but much will depend on how the rest of this season goes.
The chase for the top four is still on, while there remains the potential for a European trophy with the Europa League still to play for.
