Arsene Wenger rubbishes Barcelona speculation

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has rubbished speculation linking him with taking over at Barcelona in the summer.

Barca boss Gerardo Martino is under pressure after a string of poor domestic results, with speculation mounting that he could be let go after just one season in charge.

Speculation in Spain has suggested that the Arsenal boss could be the man to replace him.

However Wenger was quick to dismiss any suggestion that he could leave the Gunners earlier today.

When quizzed about the rumours the Arsenal boss said: "My commitment is here and nowhere else."

Wenger has been in charge at Arsenal for over 17 years and although he is yet to agree a new contract, it is believed he will commit his future to the club for a further two years shortly.

The Frenchman has more pressing matters to deal with for the time being - his side take on local rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Spurs have been struggling for form of late while Arsenal go into the game having been dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich - and Wenger admits that it is a big game for both sides.

"Tottenham is a difficult ground to go to for everybody, we have good memories and bad memories," he said.

"I still think it takes time when you bring in many new players but you cannot say Spurs had a bad season."
