Arsene Wenger's Arsenal future to be decided after FA Cup final

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal future to be decided after FA Cup final

At the moment I think we should focus on the short-term; on the last game and the cup final.

Asked if that fixture would be his last at the Emirates Stadium, Wenger said: 'Of the season? "That's all we can do, win our game".

"I have seen players like Gael Clichy, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Gibbs coming to Arsenal and not progressing as they might have - and Per Mertesacker exposed because of a lack of protection".

"But there can be problems if you over indulge them".

He missed the win over Sunderland in the hope of being fit to face Everton, but could now be left on the sidelines with one eye on the cup final.

Arsenal's failure to sustain a title challenge over the past decade and repeated UEFA Champions League exits at the last-16 stage-which are frequently humiliating to boot-have increased calls for Wenger to step down from many Gunners fans. They are sitting fifth in the standings, one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool and three behind third-placed Manchester City.

Although Wenger is often derided for defending his record for finishing in the top four rather than consistently winning silverware, Koscielny admitted he would rather qualify for next season's Champions League than win the FA Cup.

"He could get injured, he's losing X amount of money because the new contract is better for that year so you have to give him some credit if he wants his credit to run out".

The 50-year-old, who is now managing LaLiga side Granada, claims he tried to return to the club on four occasions in a coaching capacity, but was overlooked each time.

He added: "Arsene was absolutely the best man for Arsenal when he had his English defence and more exotic overseas attacking talent".

The uncertainty surrounding the club has been detrimental to the second half of their campaign, though it has been clear for some time Wenger will not be revealing his plans until the end of the season. "If we don't, we don't", the German said.

Tony Adams does not think a return to Arsenal is possible while Arsene Wenger is at the club after once claiming the Frenchman "couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag".

Speaking in his autobiography Sober, serialised in the Sun, he said: "Perhaps Arsene thought I might be too challenging for him. He did an unbelievable job so we need to respect this and his decision at the end of the season".
