Arsene Wenger remains committed to Arsenal

Arsene Wenger will get the axeArsene Wenger says he is keen to stay on at Arsenal beyond 2014 and insists talk of him leaving this summer is rubbish.

The Gunners boss, 63, still has another season left to run on his current deal, but has been linked with a summer switch to big-spending Paris St Germain after another trophyless campaign at the Emirates.

Wenger, though, stressed his only focus was on securing Arsenal a top-four finish in the Premier League again and then planning to further strengthen the squad in the transfer window, with the best part of a £100million war-chest at his disposal.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the weekend trip to relegated QPR, Wenger said: “I answered that question already. I respect my contracts.

“I want to stay (on past 2014) if I do well and if I consider or the club considers that I do well, that is all. I want this club to do well, that is my basic feeling.”

Wenger acknowledges the past few years, with several star men leaving, has been difficult but he remains optimistic over the future.

He added: “We have gone through a period that was very sensitive, we are coming out of it now, in a much stronger position financially.

“I believe the club is in a very strong position for the future.”
