Arsenal boss yet to decide on new contract

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger has revealed that, currently, there are no plans in place to discuss a possible contract extension, reports the Evening Standard.

The Arsenal boss is running out of time on his current deal, which is due to expire at the end of the season.

It was revealed earlier in the summer that Ivan Gazidis will seek to renew it once the transfer window had closed.

But Wenger has now claimed that no talks are in the offing, insisting he is yet to decide whether he has done sufficiently well to stay at the club.

In his pre-match press conference he said: “My own situation? We are not in a hurry. We are in September. My contract finishes in June. It’s a long way to go.”

"There is no need to plan. I said many times that I want to do well for this club and at the end I will sit down and think how well have I done with the team. And that has to be sufficient to decide yes or no.

“That’s one of the main judgements you can have about the manager, is how well he does with his team.”

Wenger also confirmed that Tomas Rosicky faces a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury whilst on international duty for the Czech Republic. However, both Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott are fit to travel to Sunderland on Saturday.
