New Wenger interview: ‘How long I stay does not really matter’

Arsene Wenger has once again been non-committal about his Arsenal future in an interview aired on Wednesday.

After the weekend’s 3-1 defeat at West Brom the Frenchman claimed he would reveal “very soon” what he would do after making up his mind on his future.

Reports on Monday suggested Wenger was set to announce he was going to sign a new contract and he has labelled reports he has been offered the job at PSG as “fake news”.

Now in an exclusive interview with BeIN SportsWenger was asked about his future at the Emirates, but the 67-year-old was guarded.

“My news is that…I have no news for you…no matter how long I stay I will be committed and completely focused as long as I stay at the club,” he said.

“How long I stay does not really matter as because as long as I’m there I’m focused.

“At the moment we are going through a difficult period so I think it is much more important to focus on getting it right again.

“We suffer a lot at the moment but when you take some distance and put things into perspective, we have two games in hand and we have a semi-final of the cup against Manchester City.

“You can basically say that if you don’t win the championship then it is not a successful season and I can understand that, but you can have clubs like Liverpool who have never won the Premier League who are a big club.

“Chelsea are going to win the title and only one club every year can win it. Of course it is a disappointment not to win the championship, but after that, you have to do as far and as well as you can.

“Other people judge your work but my job is not to judge, but to produce. I will let other people judge,” added Wenger.
