Wenger's Arsenal stay confirmed


Henry said he was pleased to see Wenger stay at the club but added that it remained to be seen whether the decision would pay off.

"The message to the fans is in aid of the club", Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

Both Gazidis and Wenger talked about mounting a "sustained league challenge".

He said after that 2-1 win over Chelsea at Wembley that he was still the right man for the job, and he received the backing of the club board at a meeting on Tuesday.

" Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe".

"I am grateful for the support of the Council and will do everything possible to win more trophies".

"But when you look around and make that assessment, you don't find any better candidates than Arsene Wenger".

He urged Kroenke and the club's board, of which he is not a member, to give Wenger full backing to allow the Frenchman to secure a positive legacy at the club after nearly 21 years in charge.

Wenger has won three Premier League titles and a record seven FA Cups with the Gunners.

He wore a blue jail jumpsuit and didn't say anything other than to yell slogans, including "Death to the enemies of America". His felony convictions - for robbery and kidnapping - came in 2002, state corrections department records show.

Only part of Arsenal's announcement about the new contract gave the impression there was any significant post-mortem on the first full season in Wenger's reign when the team has finished outside of the Premier League's top four.

Embattled manager Arsene Wenger has signed another two-year deal to stay on with Arsenal, news outlets have reported.

Ivan said: "There is no complacency anywhere at this club".

Arsenal have not seriously competed in Europe for many years - the furthest they have gotten is the semi-finals back in 2009. "Everything we do is created to make that happen, and we will be working hard on and off the pitch this summer to improve and make a strong challenge next season", he said.

Arsenal have always been victims of Barcelona chasing their best players, and with Bellerin himself leaving Barca for north London earlier in his career, many felt a return could be on the cards. We live in a very competitive world where you need the support of the owner as well.

"But he is not leaving, the board have assessed the situation to see if it was the best for the club".

Television presenter and Arsenal fan Piers Morgan vented his frustration at the news of Wenger's new deal.

First on his to-do list will be making improved contract offers to Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
