Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he will review his position at the end of the season, hinting this could be his last campaign in charge of the club.

The 62-year-old has managed Arsenal since 1996 and his current contract has two more years to run.

However, he told L'Equipe: "We'll look at things at the end of this season. What's hard is the feeling something is finishing. For me, we're now talking short term, it's obvious. But whether it's with me or someone else, it changes nothing. My successor needs foundations on which he can be successful."

However, Wenger moved to allay fears he is considering his position at the Emirates Stadium after witnessing his side come from behind to beat Norwich on Saturday.

Robin van Persie found the net twice after Steve Morison had made the most of Per Mertesacker's defensive lapse to put the home side ahead.

And Wenger confirmed after the game that he is Arsenal have his full commitment.

"I am completely committed to this club," the Frenchman told Sky Sports. "This is the club of my life and I am committed to my contract.

"There was a conversation (with L'Equipe Mag) in which I was asked what I will do if I don't do well (this season), to which I replied that I could consider it (my future) only if I do what I think is below what is expected of the club.

"But on my side, I have always shown commitment to the club."
