Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has once again reiterated his desire to stay on at the football club at the end of this season and has also revealed, that this year, his main focus is on winning the Premier League.
The Frenchman, who is now the longest serving manager in English football because of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, has been put under a lot of pressure in recent months from a large proportion of Arsenal fans, but he remains committed to the club and the club's officials still believe his is the right man for the job.
The Gunners ended last season in super form winning nine out of their last 11 games and their late run saw them leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur into fourth place and it put them into this year's Champions League qualification stage.
Wenger has been strongly linked with a move back to his homeland with mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain very interested in securing him as their manager, but after confirming he wants to stay at the Emirates Stadium, the French champions appointed Laurent Blanc instead.
The 63-year-old has one year left on his current contract at Arsenal, but he has once again reiterated his desire to stay on further than just this season and admits that next season will be crucial to whether or not he does stay on at the football club he's been at for 17-years.
"I will see how it goes in the season," Wenger said.
"You want to do well. My heart is with this club because I am there for a long, long time but, as well, I want to do well for the club and that will decide how long I will stay."
The Frenchman has also admitted his intentions are to win the Premier League next season.
There is only one title and that is the Premier League - all the rest is cups,' he said.
"We want to fight for the Premier League this year. In England, it's a bit more open. "Everybody has a chance.
"We have finished strong last year and we want to transfer that strength into the start of the season. If we manage to do that, we have a chance."
