Arsene Wenger has reacted angrily to reports of him being in talks over a new two-year Arsenal deal, claiming they were “lies” and wrong information.

The Gunners boss was speaking in the press conference ahead of the clash with Bayern Munich at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday evening.

More than one outlet ran with the story that initial talks had taken place with Wenger and the Arsenal hierarchy to extend his current deal, which expires in 2014.

The Frenchman was fuming when asked about the story in the mandatory pre-match conference and dismissed them as “false and lies”.

“That is the wrong information and I think I work for 16 years in England and I think I deserve a bit more credit than wrong information that have only one intention: to harm,” he is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

“If it is good information which comes from nowhere it is alright, but this is wrong information that comes from nowhere and it is completely wrong.”

The contract story came in light of Arsenal’s embarrassing FA Cup exit to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday when Wenger’s future was questioned by many Gunners fans.

A loss at home to a Championship side in the Cup and an angry press conference is not the ideal lead up to a meeting with a side that top the Bundesliga and have been on fire of later.

Despite the fluctuating form and the prospect of missing out on a trophy for the eighth year in a row, Wenger insisted he had confidence in his side to beat the Germans.
