Arsenal boss commits to 2014 and perhaps beyond.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has once again dismissed rumours that he is set to sign a contract with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain this summer, and committed his future to the north London club for next season.
When asked about the possibility of joining PSG in his press conference, Wenger was quite clear.
“I answered that question already,” said the Gunners boss, whose deal expires in 2014.
“I respect my contracts. Every game excites me plus the love for this club.”
“I do my job with a lot of commitment and a lot of loyalty. I try to do as best as I can for this club.”
Wenger also added that he could consider staying beyond the end of his contract.
“I want to stay if I do well, if the club considers I do well.”
The Frenchman has coached the Gunners for the last seventeen seasons, and has proved himself as their most successful ever manager.
However, in recent years he has paid the price for his early title triumphs and cup victories, and though the playing field has changed with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea bought by mega-rich oligarchs, Wenger still helps Arsenal qualify for the UEFA Champions League each season.
Still, with the Gunners’ trophy drought now heading into a ninth season, there is more pressure on Wenger than ever, and heavy investment into the playing squad this summer will be crucial.
