Arsene Wenger signed a new two-year extension to his Arsenal contract at the end of last season, but despite the fact that this is the worst ever season in his career at the club, the Boss says that he has no intention of leaving this summer whatever the media or gossip-mongers may say.
Wenger was quoted as saying on Sky Sports: “I have always respected my contracts, I would like to remind you I said no to all the biggest clubs in the world to respect my contract so that’s always what I try to do.
“After that, we have as well to accept in our job that the future is the future – but for me, that’s to win the next game.
“We have to perform better in every single game and show until the end of the season a complete hunger to win every single game. That’s what it’s about for us.”
Surely that is what it is for us fans as well? We are desperate for Arsenal to get back to winning ways and shoot back into the Top Four, to beat Man City in next week’s League Cup Final, and to go on and win the Europa League as well, but do any of us actually believe that is possible? NO!
We have had just three League away wins all season, and have been beaten by some illustrious names like Swansea, Stoke, Bournemouth and Watford (not to mention Nottm Forest and Cologne!) so why on Earth should I believe that we can win every remaining game?
One thing I CAN believe, however, is that Arsene Wenger will not be leaving at the end of the season, however many more games we lose!
