Any decision on Wenger’s future remains with the Frenchman himself.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will not be sacked even if the Gunners fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League, reports BBC journalist David Ornstein.
The Frenchman is due to attend the club’s monthly board meeting on Thursday but his future is not expected to be on the agenda.
It is understood that Wenger, 63, retains the unequivocal support of majority shareholder Stan Kroenke and his fellow directors.
Arsenal have had a disastrous week on the pitch after crashing out of the FA Cup against Championship outfit Blackburn on Saturday, before losing being throughly outclassed by Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 first-leg. Both matches were in front of a home crowd at the Emirates Stadium.
Barring a shock result in Germany, the North London outfit are facing an eighth successive season without a trophy and they trail rivals Tottenham by four points in the race for fourth place in the Premier League and qualification for the coveted Champions League.
Their form has led to calls for Wenger to be dismissed but Orstein reports that any decision over the 63-year-old’s future rests with him.
Wenger is under contract until 2014 and the Arsenal board would also be prepared to offer him a new deal if he wishes to extend a reign that began in 1996.
