Arsene Wenger has revealed his plans to stay at Arsenal beyond the summer, despite constant speculation linking him with a move away from the Emirates, and specifically with the Monaco job.

The veteran boss told French TV station ‘beIN Sports’ that he intends to stay in North London beyond the current campaign, and that all talk of him leaving the club in the summer is repetitive nonsense,

“Look, I have said that many times already, I have given my word to this club and that I want to continue where I am.

“That means to stay.”

English papers last night claimed that Ligue 1 side Monaco are preparing a £13m deal to lure Wenger back to France, but his staunch words of loyalty and commitment to the Arsenal cause will surely end all talk of him departing the club.

The Gunners have struggled in the latter part of this Premier League season, dropping out of the race for the title after some disastrous results against the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, and are now in a straight scrap with Everton for fourth place.

The aforementioned results against their bitter rivals saw many Arsenal fans calling for Wenger’s head, but with an FA Cup final against Hull to come, the unhappy fans may change their tune if the Frenchman secures the club’s fist silverware since 2005, as well as beating Everton to the last Champions League spot.

What do you think, Arsenal fans? Are you happy that Wenger is staying at the club?

  1. The only time i will be happy to see wenger stay at the club is to see him buying good and experience players and winning more trouphies. How can a player play all his life time career with the team without winning anything. Sangna is refusing to renew his contract because he is fed up with de team.He is a good coach but has made we the fans gone through a lot of lamentation.

    • Quite happy for Sagna to leave. He’s been responsible for some diabolical errors and lack of patience the last 2 seasons.

  2. This season was wenger’s chance to clinch the title next season the top teams will strengthen even better that means arsene will have to spend more to just catch up with them which he will not do he thinks top players can fall in love with his team and just play for peanuts, he should be careful the other players dont derail him and jump ship every good player wants to win trophies

  3. The thing is back in January we were cruising top of the league, only to be let down by injuries again, time and again Arsenal suffer due to injuries… its been like that for at least 5 – 6 seasons. He had the chance to bolster the squad in January and never did it.. Thats either complacency or stupidity! Everyone knows Arsenal as a squad can be complacent at times… I guess we know where/who that comes from! If he dont buy well in the summer… He should go Monaco

  4. Arsenal need a change we need fresh ideas

  5. OH YES SO VERY PLEASED MR WENGER IS THE BEST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO THE CLUB EVEN THE GREAT HERBERT CHAPMAN WOULD AGREE WITH THAT IN HIM WE HAVE A MAN WHO KNOWS HOW A FOOTBALL CLUB SHOULD BE RUN THE CLUB IS NOW AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN A LEAGUE ABOVE ANY OTHER CLUB IN THE WORLD IN THAT REGARD FOR ME I HAVE COMPLETE AND FAITH IN MR WENGER AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT WE HAVE A VERY GOOD SQUAD OF PLAYERS AND HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING WHEN YOU LOOK ABOUT AND SEE THE WAY SOME CLUBS BEHAVE WELL IT SPEAKS FOR ITs SELF YES I WOULD LOVE A BOY BASTIN OR A DAVID JACK OR TED DRAKE BUT WHO WOULD NOT .
