Arsene Wenger Believes He Will See Out His Contract Extension


As much as #WengerOut is a thing, has been a thing for awhile, and will continue being a thing in the near future, it doesn’t appear that Arsene Wenger is going anywhere. The Arsenal manager railed against the heavy criticism leveled against him following the EFL Cup final debacle, but still maintains that it’s up to him if and when he departs the club.

“All the decisions that are technical have always been mine, and that will remain, because it’s a part of my job,” Wenger said.

Despite the club being mired in sixth place, a whopping 10 points adrift of the fourth and final UEFA Champions League qualification slot, Wenger maintains that will see out the full depth of the two-year contract extension that he was given by the club last summer.

“I’m here for 21 years, and I always respected my contract, so I’m quite amazed that you asked me the question. In life, I look at what people do, not at what they say. And what I did in my life was that [respect my contract,” Wenger added.  “So I’m quite amazed that you ask me the question. After, if you want me not to be here, that’s a different problem.”

“You ask me about my commitment, my attitude is dictated by what I did in my life. Not what I talk here at the press conference.”

“In life you focus on the quality of what is your job and how well you commit, how hard you work. And you try to master what you can master. You will not decide your future at your newspapers, so I’m exactly like you. I’m an employee, and I give my best for my club that I love.”

Sorry Arsenal fans, but it doesn’t appear, at least right now that Arsene Wenger is headed for the exits come May.


However, there has still been a ton of speculation about who his successor could be, with the name of club legend Thierry Henry getting a lot of traction. I guess we’ll have to just wait and see.
