Wenger says his future will be decided this week

Posted June 01, 2017

In the ongoing saga of the contract negotiations between Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, the club was reportedly ready to make one final, gold-plated push for the duo.

Those losses, combined with a Champions League last 16 thrashing by Bayern Munich, prompted the most sustained fan protests against Wenger in his two-decade reign.

It appears as though Wenger remains in charge of his future at the Emirates, a situation only mirrored by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who decided his own fate when he retired in 2013.

'We are at the end of the season and a lot of players are exhausted and then there is a lot of pressure.

'Arsene Wenger was still winning FA Cups and until this season he had always got in the top four, but now that's changed.

"There is a lot of tension in these moments and sometimes you could be exhausted".

The club is expected to announce the move formally on Wednesday.

"Everyone trusted me and supported me throughout the season when I was not playing and the manager gave me the opportunity". I don't think that if my player dived, he did it with a real intention to do this [deceive].

Asked if he would be preparing a presentation ahead of the meeting, Wenger said: "The best presentation is to watch the game".

Chelsea were reduced to 10 men in the second half after Victor Moses was shown a second yellow card for diving inside the Arsenal area - but the newly-crowned Premier League champions would still find a way to equalise through Costa.

"Overall I just want to do well for this club and apart from that it's down to the board members to decide whether I'm the right man to take this club further".

FOOTBALL'S worst kept secret is finally out - Arsene Wenger is staying at Arsenal, and he's staying for the next two years. "I've got a nasty feeling Arsene Wenger will walk away from the Arsenal job today - and leave the club totally in the lurch", Wright was quoted as saying.

"The only way the board should have allowed him to run down his contract yet again is if they had private assurances from him that he was staying".

'I think obviously when he went inside there was a moment when I sort of went to go for the ball, and then I thought he might just be a little bit ahead of me so I chose to pull out and not go for it.
