With Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s contract with the Gunners set to expire at the end of next season, fears had begun to emerge the gaffer may be ready for a new challenge in his managerial career.
The gaffer has now calmed such fears revealing he doesn’t see himself managing at another club but also went against reports that he was already in discussions regarding a new deal
The 66-year-old told the Evening Standard, via the Independent that a deal was not yet on the table “Not at the moment,” said Wenger on contract discussions.
“I am completely focused on doing well and I want to give absolutely everything until the end of the season. Then I want to go through the next season. You know that 18 months for a manager today is an eternity.”
“I am completely committed to this club and I don’t imagine managing anywhere else at the moment. Will I stop working once I stop managing on a competitive level? No. I will always try to work if I have hands and try to be useful at some stage and some level. Maybe it will be a different level but I will always work.”
Wenger was appointed Arsenal manager way back in September 1996 and has gone to have an impressive stint with the Gunners having won nine major trophies with Arsenal, including the Premier League three times — in 1998, 2002 and 2004 — and the FA Cup six times.
