Arsene Wenger insists he is not the sort of man to break a contract amid speculation his Arsenal reign could come to an early end this summer.

Wenger was handed a new two-year contract at the end of last season by majority shareholder Stan Kroenke after months of pressure over his future, with a rancorous atmosphere engulfing a club that appeared to lack a structure to cope without their manager of 21 years.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis has moved to address that this season, hiring a new recruitment chief, head of football relations and experts in contracts and player fitness.

 With Arsenal showing few signs of moving forward on the pitch speculation has mounted that Wenger could leave at the end of the season, with the manager himself confirming in October that his position would be reviewed at the end of the season.

But Wenger takes pride in never having broken a contract during his two-decades in north London and, in an interview on beIN Sports, hinted that that would not happen this summer.

“I have always respected my contracts,” Wenger said. “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.
