Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood says reports linking Arsene Wenger with Paris Saint Germain are ‘complete nonsense’.
Recent speculation has indicated the Gunners boss is the favourite to succeed Carlo Ancelotti in the French capital if, as expected, the Italian leaves the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.
Wenger was recently asked about the link with the Ligue 1 leaders and said he had no intention to leave the Premier League before the end of his current contract which still has a year to run.
Hill-Wood has now moved to put further distance between Wenger and the exit door at the Emirates Stadium, insisting the 63-year-old is “happy as Larry” in his current job.
“I think this is complete nonsense,” Hill-Wood told the Daily Star. “In fact, I know it is complete nonsense.”
Meanwhile, former Arsenal player and current Lyon manager Remi Garde believes his old boss won’t be as attracted to PSG’s star-studded squad as some managers might be and thinks Wenger will stay put.
“I think that if there’s a year left on his contract at Arsenal, there’s every chance he’ll honour that,” the former French international told RMC.
“I worked under him a few years ago. Perhaps experience has made him change some of his principles. When he says it himself, I rather think he’ll continue with the Gunners.”
