Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that his uncertain future ‘is his last worry’ as he is focused on getting the underperforming Gunners’ season back on track.
The long-serving Frenchman has had to fend off fresh questions concerning his job at the Emirates Stadium, having seen his side dismantled by Manchester City in Sunday’s and midweek clash.
Reports in the British press claim that Arsenal chiefs are already in the process of seeking a replacement, with Wenger unlikely to stay on beyond the end of the campaign.
“Honestly, my position is the last worry I have, my focus is to get the team ready for the game,” he told reporters at his pre-match press conference. “We are in that kind of situation where you want to focus on the next game.
“I don’t ask if your position is reviewed at the end of the season. My job is to perform and it is for other people to evaluate.”
When probed if he was certain he would still be in charge come next season, Wenger said: “Will it stop you sleeping, that my position might not be certain or is certain? No. What is interesting in football is the performance, it is the game you will see on Thursday night.
“All the rest maybe makes headlines but it is not really interesting. I am amazed I have to answer about things that are exactly the same – I am here for 21 years and turned the world down to respect my contract.”
Wenger has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups during his near-22 years in North London.
