Arsene Wenger says his future will be resolved next week after he created history with a record seventh FA Cup triumph.

Wenger became the first manager to win seven FA Cups as Arsenal upset the odds to deny Chelsea the double with a 2-1 victory at Wembley Stadium.

“I am very proud because you see what fight you have to win one (FA Cup) ,” Wenger said on BBC One.

“I am proud if no one has done it before, to win the championship without losing a game and win seven FA Cups.

On his future, Wenger added: “We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and on Wednesday or Thursday it will all be very clear.”

Alexis Sanchez gave Arsenal a controversial fifth-minute lead when his goal was allowed to stand despite the ball striking his arm in the build-up.

Victor Moses was sent off after 68 minutes, receiving his second booking for simulation in the penalty area, but Diego Costa equalised before Aaron Ramsey headed home a 79th-minute winner.

“I think we had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards,” Wenger said after Arsenal’s record 13th success in the competition.

“This team has suffered, but it has united and responded.

“I said last week that this team would win the championship with one or two buys and keep them together.

“They are in a good way, they showed strength and unity and we played spectacular football.”
