Arsenal have responded to the news that Jurgen Klopp wants to leave his post as Borussia Dortmund manager by confirming that current Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will see out his contract at least, according to The Telegraph.
Wenger is the longest serving manager in English football, coming up to his 19th year in charge at Arsenal having joined in October 1996, and it has been revealed will see out the final two years on his contract at the very least.
Under Wenger, Arsenal have won three Premier League titles and five FA Cups, with the club looking to win a modern-day record sixth title this season, and currently sit second in the league.
Jurgen Klopp, who announced his intention to leave Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday afternoon, had been tipped by many, including loud mouth fan Piers Morgan, as a possible successor to the long-standing Frenchman.
In his seven year spell at BVB, Klopp has won two Bundesliga titles, one German cup and guided the club to a runners-up spot in the 2012/13 Champions League as they lost to Bayern Munich in the final at Wembley.
Arsenal chiefs though, have no plans to make a move for Klopp and insist that thoughts on Wenger’s successor are only club’s long term plans with the former Monaco man as committed and focused as ever.
Looking into the summer, the Gunners board look set to hand their manager a £50m war-chest to improve the squad and deliver further success.
