Arsene Wenger plans to see out Arsenal contract

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has indicated that he has no desire to leave the north London club midway through his two-year contract. The Frenchman prolong his stay with the Gunners in May 2017 after guiding them to their third FA Cup title in four seasons.

Wenger has since struggled to push the club towards a potential title challenge, and it has been suggested of late that he could consider his position altogether at the end of the campaign. However, speaking to BeIN Sports, the 68-year-old appeared to put cold water on the speculation by citing his commitment towards the Gunners.

He said: "I have always respected my contracts. I would like to remind you I said no to all the biggest clubs in the world to respect my contract so that's always what I try to do. After that, we have as well to accept in our job that the future is the future but for me, that's to win the next game. We have to perform better in every single game and show until the end of the season a complete hunger to win every single game. That's what it's about for us."

Arsenal are facing the prospect of missing out on Champions League football for the second season on the trot after falling eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with just 11 games remaining. Nevertheless, there is a sense of optimism within the club's ranks as they can also qualify for the elite competition by winning the Europa League this term.

The Gunners have a key League Cup final versus Manchester City on Sunday evening, and Wenger will be hoping for his side to put in an A level performance in order to secure the only domestic crown which has eluded him during his two decade-long stay with the club.
