Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has moved quickly to dismiss speculation that he could leave the Gunners.

Reports in French publication L'Equipe suggested Wenger, who has been at the helm for Arsenal since 1996, would be considering his position as manager at the end of the season.

However, the 62-year-old played down his quotes following victory against Norwich City, and insisted he has no intention of stepping aside at the Emirates.

“I have a few more years to go. I will stay and that's it. It was a little sentence if you read well," he told the official Arsenal website.


“I can only speak for me - the Club can decide to get rid of me tomorrow morning and I cannot interfere with that decision - but I am totally committed here and I will show you that at the end of the season.”

Further reiterating his stance, the Frenchman was unequivocal when proclaiming his love for a club which have benefited greatly from his wisdom - three Barclays Premier League and four FA Cup trophies suggest a period of success.

Wenger has certainly helped get the club's fortunes back on track in recent months, with a fifth successive league win propelling the Gunners to seventh in the table.

“I wanted just to say that this is the Club of my life. I have a contract that I will honour and the only way I would one day consider [leaving] is if I feel I have not done well enough for the Club," he told Arsenal Player.

“You cannot say you love the Club and have a start like we had then ignore it. That is just what I wanted to say.

“There is no mixed message in there. My commitment and love for this Club is total. The only way I would consider [my future] is if I was not doing well enough for the Club.”
