Arsene Wenger has hit out at suggestions he could step down as Arsenal manager in the summer by insisting he is still ‘committed’ to the club and is going nowhere.
The 66-year-old will have been in charge of the north Londoners for 20 years this September and has guided the club to three Premier League titles and six FA Cups during his tenure.
However, with the last league crown being won back in the 2003-04 season and the side currently sitting 11 points adrift of leaders Leicester with only eight games remaining, it looks unlikely the Gunners will claim it again this term.
That has led to speculation that Wenger will be replaced in the summer and will not get the opportunity to celebrate his 20th anniversary in charge at Arsenal early next season.
But the French tactician has responded by stressing that he has no plans to walk away and he is still determined to bring more success to Arsenal.
On his future, Wenger said: “I have no doubt because I am committed and when I do something I do it 100 per cent. I am always committed to give my best as long as I am at the club. I don’t worry too much about the rest, what other people say.
“All the rest is judgements, opinions… In my job you focus on what is important which is to perform. I believe in life it is very important you focus on what you are appointed for and I am appointed to perform and do the best for my club.
That’s all I focus on. My future is my future.”
Arsenal are 7.00 to recover and win the Premier League title this season, while they are 1.05 for a Top 4 finish.
