Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirms that he will not leave the Emirates Stadium club this summer to take over at PSG.
Arsene Wenger says he has no plans to leave Arsenal this summer despite persistent rumours to the contrary.
The Gunners boss has been heavily linked with the likely managerial vacancy at Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, but wrote in his Eurosport column that he has no plans to take charge at Parc des Princes.
“The rumours about my future? It does not bother me, it is part of the interest of the footballing public,” said Wenger.”
“You have to live with it and try to educate people.
“I answered this question several times by saying that I have always respected my contract and I will continue to do so.”
The PSG link has been particularly strong because of the rumoured departure of current boss Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, with Jose Mourinho set to rejoin Chelsea, and Rafa Benitez set to leave Stamford Bridge with his destination not yet known.
“There will undoubtedly be a rotation of coaches, with a game of musical chairs,” continued Wenger.
“It concerns a lot of people but it is a rotation with respect to big-name coaches, so no matter where they go, there will always be great coaches everywhere.”
Although Arsene Wenger has suffered plenty of criticism at Arsenal over the last few years, with the club not having won a trophy in eight seasons, he has consistently achieved both UEFA Champions League qualification and progression to the knockout stage of the competition – even when hamstrung by player sales and stadium debt.
This summer, the Gunners have more funds at their disposal, and the club are expected to make some big moves in the transfer market.
Wenger could once again prove that he is amongst the best coaches in the world.
