Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has addressed his future at the north London side in the wake of Sunday’s Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City, who the Gunners clash with again in the Premier League on Thursday.
Calls for the French boss to end his long association with Arsenal have raised significantly in the wake of the 3-0 defeat to the Citizens, with reports suggesting that the club are preparing for life within Wenger- despite the fact he only signed a new two-year deal last summer.
Ahead of Thursday’s clash with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium, Wenger was asked about his future in a pre-match press conference but was adamant he’s not currently concerned about that. Speaking to reporters, he said:
“My position is my position. Honestly, that’s the last worry I have at the moment. My focus is to get the team ready for the game. I just told you what my way of thinking is; it’s the next game. We’re in that kind of situation. I don’t ask you if your position is reviewed at the end of the season. ”
“My job is to perform. It’s not for me to evaluate. If you need clarity, I can repeat exactly the same answer. Does it stop you sleeping that my position is uncertain or certain? The game on Thursday is what is important. “I’m amazed I always have to answer things that are the same. I’ve been here 21 years and turned the whole world down to honour my contract.”
Arsenal have remarkably already lost six games since the turn of the year, including three of their last four matches across all competitions.
