Arsene Wenger has today given his biggest hint yet that he is close to signing a new contract, and wishes to finish his managerial contract with Arsenal.
Wenger, who has one year remaining on his contract often leaves it late when renewing, but wants to show his faith in his team and his belief in the project he has been building at the Emirates for the last several years.
“I have to show how much I believe in this team by showing my commitment, my situation will be sorted out very soon.”
“I believe my commitment to the club has nothing do with the speculation of how the season would go, because that would be unfair.
If I do not do well, and one day the club is not happy with me I can completely understand that I do not stay here any more. But I believe we will do well.”
“What will be success is to improve from last year, which is to win the league – that is the only benchmark – You cannot finish third and then say for the season after, you want to finish behind that. We are a young side and the improvement is natural – the ambition is there, we are hungry for success.”
“We know people want more from us and we are ready to give more, but success is to win the league.”
