Gunners fans can now relax.
Arsene Wenger has committed himself to Arsenal following speculation linking him with a summer switch to Real Madrid, BBC Sport understands.
The Frenchman’s near 13-year reign has been brought into the spotlight recently following the club’s failure to win a trophy in four years.
And Wenger said this week that managing Real would be “an interesting project”.
But after a day of talks with chief executive Ivan Gazidis, Wenger has reaffirmed his commitment to the club.
Wenger and Gazidis had their regular meeting at the club’s training ground on Tuesday but instead of discussing the manager’s immediate future much of the talk was about plans for next season and the summer transfer targets.
The former Monaco boss has two more seasons to run on his Arsenal contract and has always insisted in the past that he would never break that deal.
However, it is thought the 59-year-old has grown increasingly angry at what he perceives to be a lack of support from the fans. (BBC Sport)
Speculation had been rife that Wenger was considering making the move to Real Madrid and recent comments from our esteemed leader didn’t help matters but i am pleased that today things look a little clearer and it does seem like Arsene is still very much part of the Arsenal furniture and hopefully for some time to come.
There will be some fans who feel the timing was right for the Frenchman to leave but they would be wrong. Yes it’s been four frustrating seasons and counting but i think we can all see what he is trying to do and we all remember his successes from the not to distant past so i think we just all need to get behind the boss and push in the same direction as a whole.
Up The Gunners!
