Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he will sign a new contract extension to stay at Emirates Stadium beyond the current season.
The Gunners boss was speaking in a guest appearance on beIN Sports last night, and told the French broadcaster that he would put pen to paper soon.
Wenger’s current deal expires at the end of the season, and beIN Sports asked once again whether he would commit to extend his stay.
“Look, I’ve said that many times already, I’ve given my word to this club and I want to continue where I am,” said Wenger, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.
“That means to stay.”
The first half of Wenger’s time at the helm featured plenty of trophies, but Arsenal have gone trophyless for the last nine years.
Should the wily Frenchman help the Gunners claim the FA Cup at the end of this season, it would be a big weight off his and his team’s shoulders, and if the north London side can reach the UEFA Champions League once again, an ambitious summer of spending could signal a new era for Wenger – and Arsenal.
