Arsenal set to rubber-stamp new Arsène Wenger contract

Arsenal

Wenger was also dismissive of the notion that his record-breaking FA Cup success, after previous wins in 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014 and 2015, might have an impact on the talks about his position.

Chelsea ended up losing 2-1 to the Gunners as goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey wrapped up victory for Arsenal despite Diego Costa's equaliser.

A fifth-placed top-flight finish and humiliating Champions League exit, which came in a 10-2 aggregate loss to familiar foes Bayern Munich, were among the reasons for discontent.

The BBC reported that this get together was not a formal board meeting, but a gathering at which Wenger's future will be discussed by the club's directors.

"For the trust from my team-mates and my manager because being sidelined for such a long time, I suffered a lot this season because you want to contribute on the pitch".

"We live in a society that wants always change, but at the end of the day football is about making the right decision and every company is about making the right decision, that's why I say it's not about popularity, it's about competence and I have not that responsibility", Wenger said. We are committed to mounting a sustained league challenge and that will be our focus this summer and next season.

Arsenal fans praise Arsene Wenger, throw shade at Spurs and rejoice in beating Chelsea after winning the FA Cup. I think I have shown you that I have exactly the same commitment.

Why was Ford CEO Mark Fields fired - err, retired?
Profits in the first quarter dropped sharply, and the company's share price has dropped almost 40 percent since Fields took over. Reporting to executive chairman Bill Ford , Hackett will lead Ford's worldwide operations and 202,000 employees globally.

Arsenal produced their best performance for years and Mertesacker said that the high level the team reached was testament to Wenger's continued management of the club.

To win the Premier League, the Champions League and a top competition, you really need at least two or three top players added to do that.

"I believe that it's a positive trend, but it would be ridiculous if 20 years depends on one game or the future of the club depends on one game", he said.

Earlier on Tuesday, former Arsenal striker Ian Wright spoke of his fears Wenger could leave the Gunners "totally in the lurch" by walking away this week - fears that could soon be allayed.

"I was delighted for him on Saturday", Adams said.

"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".

"Otherwise, it is total incompetence to get to this stage". I thought I was playing very well in the last few months. The only bit of advice I have for young coaches, if you have a tendency to be paranoid don't do this job.
