Arsene Wenger to extend Arsenal stay with a two-year contract

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has apparently agreed to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium with a two-year contract.

The Frenchman on Monday met with American club owner Stan Kroenke to determine his future with the North London club that he has served for the last 21 years.

According to BBC Sport, “Arsenal are planning to make an official announcement on Wednesday.”

The Gunners beat Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday to win the Emirates FA Cup for a record 13th time, and the seventh for Wenger as manager (he has won it more times than any other manager).

Arsenal, however, finished fifth in the Premier League with 18 points behind winners Chelsea, not to mention below their arch London rivals of Tottenham and failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time under Wenger’s command.

The 67-year-old has guided Arsenal to three league trophies since taking over in 1996, 7 FA Cups and six Community Shields.

He has however been under fire in the previous campaign following the club’s humiliating exit from the Champions Leagues at the hands of Germany giants FC Bayern Munich at the round of 16 although he described the protests and criticism against him as “a disgrace he will never forget”.
