Gunners boss admits he has turned down offers to leave North London.
Arsene Wenger says he would love to stay at Arsenal ‘forever’ and has admitted he has turned down offers to leave the club during his 17-year tenure.
Following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, Wenger is the longest serving manager in the Premier League by 14 years but his current deal expires at the end of this season, and Ligue 1 giants PSG are thought to be keen on his services.
Gunners owner Stan Kroenke wants Wenger to remain in charge for the foreseeable future and Wenger, who will shortly turn 64, says he would love to remain at the Emirates Stadium forever.
“I would love to be here forever because that would make me immortal! I love this club of course,” the Frenchman told a press conference ahead of Arsenal’s visit to Swansea on Saturday.
“I’m very grateful to this Club because during my 17 years we have had ups and downs. They have always shown faith in me.”
“I’ve had consistent support from inside the club.”
“I’ve turned many offers down [over the years]… I’ve always thought this club is special.”
