Arsene Wenger 'Determined' to Stay at Arsenal

20 March 2017

Gab Marcotti provides an update on Arsene Wenger after the manager said he's made a decision about his Arsenal future.

"That's not true", an Arsenal spokesman told Germany's Sky Sports News.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly chose to extend his 21-year stay at Arsenal despite growing pressure for him to quit.

"We're certainly not taking our foot off the pedal", the Wales global told the club's website.

Ozil has yet to start a game for Arsenal since their 5-1 loss at Bayern Munich on February 15, missing a couple of games with an illness.

Wenger said his future at Arsenal was not contingent on the club securing a place in next season's Champions League.

After the last poor Arsenal performance, we were distracted by GIFs of Alexis Sanchez supposedly smirking on the bench and dubious "distance covered" numbers suggesting he might not be the Energizer bunny some make him out to be.

The misery continued when Danny Welbeck saw his header hit the crossbar, then Dawson scored a copy of his first goal with another header off a cornerkick in the 75th minute. The Arsenal defense was at fault again when substitute David Ospina, who replaced injured goalkeeper Petr Cech, came to collect a cross and clattered into Hector Bellerin.

Asked if he felt such actions were disrespectful towards a manager who has brought nine major trophies to the club, including three Premier League titles, Wenger said: "I don't know".

"You will see. Today I do not necessarily worry about that, we are in a unique bad patch we never had in 20 years".

"We lose game after game at the moment and that for me is much more important than my future".

The Gunners lost 2-1 at the Hawthornes against West Brom last season and only edged out the Baggies 1-0 at the Emirates Stadium in the earlier fixture between the two this term.
