The manager looks ready to extend his stay in north London.
Following the 1-0 Premier League win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed he was staying at the club.
It’s thought that the Frenchman will sign a two-year extension with the Gunners, with the manager’s current deal expiring at the end of this season.
When asked whether he would be staying at the Emirates Stadium beyond 2013/14, Wenger’s response was clear and simple.
“Yes, you’re not getting rid of me just yet,” the 64-year-old was quoted by the Metro.
Wenger is about to end his 17th year with the north Londoners, making him the longest serving manager in English football by quite some way.
In that time he has led them to two league and cup doubles and a Champions League final in 2006, although it is approaching nine years since the side last won a trophy.
This statistic has begun to frustrate the fans, but it could be ended on May 17 when Wenger’s men take on Hull City in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium.
It’s thought that improvements are needed in the squad at the Emirates this summer, with the team set to finish in fourth place despite having topped the league for more days than any of their competitors.
Having qualified for the Champions League for a 17th straight year though (only Real Madrid can boast a better record) and with an FA Cup triumph, this campaign can be considered a success.
