Arsene Wenger has insisted that he will ‘respect’ his two-year contract and remain in charge of Arsenal until at least the end of next season.

The long-serving boss, now into the 22nd year of his North London reign, has faced fresh speculation over his future of late following another campaign of relative mediocrity.

Arsenal are through to the final of the EFL Cup, where they will face Manchester City next weekend, and are also on the brink of a place in the last 16 of the Europa League.

However, a disappointing Premier League campaign and early FA Cup exit has prompted all-too-familiar questions for Wenger, who only put pen to paper on a contract extension through to the summer of 2019 nine months ago.

Asked if he intends to stick around beyond the end of 2017-18, the Frenchman told beIN Sports: “I have always respected my contracts, I would like to remind you I said no to all the biggest clubs in the world to respect my contract so that’s always what I try to do.

“After that, we have as well to accept in our job that the future is the future but for me, that’s to win the next game. We have to perform better in every single game and show until the end of the season a complete hunger to win every single game. That’s what it’s about for us.”

Wenger has won three English top-flight titles during his time at Arsenal, but each of those came in the first eight years of his tenure.
