Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been backed by chairman Sir Chips Keswick to deliver more silverware to the club after ending their nine-year drought in last Saturday’s FA Cup final.

The 64-year-old French tactician, who is close to penning a new contract extension at the Emirates Stadium in the coming days, came under increasing pressure in recent seasons as the club had failed to win a trophy since the 2005 FA Cup.

However, Wenger finally delivered the goods when his Gunners’ side came back from a two-goal deficit to defeat Hull City 3-2 after extra time at Wembley.

The end-of-season win added to another top-four Premier League finish which ensures Champions League football will be back on the agenda next season.

Wenger is poised to be handed up to £100million to spend on new players this summer as the club aim to challenge the likes of champions Manchester City for the Premier League title and progress further in Europe.

And Keswick is convinced that Wenger will bring more trophies to the north Londoners if he does opt to stay with the club in the long term.

Keswick said: “I hope he will continue and there will be successes to come in the very near future. We have added one trophy, and we want more.

“Anybody who does a job like that, for as long as he has, deserves every success that comes his way. He did it and I have never seen a man more delighted,” Keswick added on the club’s official website.
