Arsene Wenger has revealed a decision on his future as Arsenal manager will be made next week after he guided the club to a record-breaking FA Cup win over Chelsea on Saturday at Wembley.

Arsenal managed to overcome the Premier League champions with goals from Chile international Alexis Sanchez and Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey enough for a 2-1 win.

The Gunners have now become the most successful team in the tournament’s history after clinching the FA Cup for a 13th time and the win has put a positive spin on what was a disappointing league campaign.

Wenger’s men finished fifth in the table, missing out on the Champions League places, and the Emirates-based outfit will have to do battle in the Europa League instead.

It still remains to be seen whether the Frenchman will be in charge beyond the summer after he received huge criticism this term for some poor performances on both the domestic and European stage.

Speaking after the FA Cup triumph, the 67-year-old praised the display of his team before revealing discussions will be taking place next week to decide his future.

“Let us enjoy this win and not worry about the future,” he told the BBC: “We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and on Wednesday or Thursday it will be very clear.”

Arsenal will also be hoping to sort out the futures of both Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, whose respective deals run out at the end of next season, and a decision on Wenger could then impact on the Chilean and German.

The Gunners are 12.00 to win the Premier League next season while they are priced at 2.00 to finish in the top four and make a return to the Champions League.
