‘My preference is to Stay’ – Arsene Wenger Opens up on Arsenal Future
Amid unprecedented pressure over his future, Arsene Wenger revealed he hasn’t ruled out extending his Arsenal contract after his side cruised into the FA Cup quarterfinals with a 5-0 FA Cup win over minnows Lincoln.
Wenger, 67, has witnessed intense fan backlash over the past week, including more protests before Saturday’s clash at the Emirates Stadium as the club looks to go another season without major silverware.
But their comfortable progress to next month’s Wembley semifinals kept the critics off Arsene Wenger’s back, at least for the time being, as he admits it was his preference to remain in charge of the Premier League club, SuperSport writes.
“Let’s not talk about me too much because that has happened a lot recently. I have shown in my life that I try to serve this club with complete commitment and I will do that as long as I am here,” Wenger said.
“How long? I don’t know at the moment. I have shown a lot of loyalty and my preference is here.
“I focus on my job. I always do that. I let other people judge my performances.
“People talk and talk and talk, it doesn’t mean they talk truth. We have to deal with that and perform on the football pitch. We let people talk and show them what we are about.
“When I have a problem I try to just sort it out. I am competitive and always focused on solving the problems I face. Sometimes the size of the problem is bigger, but there are always problems.”
Arsene Wenger’s current contract runs out in the summer and there have been the loudest calls yet for managerial change at the club as expressed by the hashtag, #WengerOut.
