Arsene Wenger continues to defy the scariest job chart in sports

Arsene Wenger continues to defy the scariest job chart in sports

However, they managed to win FA Cup after beating English Premier League champions Chelsea 2-1 in the final at Wembley.

His side are the only team to win the Premier League in an unbeaten season where they chalked up 26 wins and 12 draws.

Arsenal are planning to make an official announcement confirming Wenger's new deal on Wednesday.

"We're committed to mounting a sustained league challenge and that will be our focus this summer and next season", he added.

Stan Kroenke, the majority shareholder, has stood firm in support of Wenger, even during the dismal run of form from the end of January to early April, when the team lost seven of 12 matches in all competitions.

"I think in football, the judgements are so black and white that often, if you don't fire your manager, then you're seen as being unambitious".

Any Arsenal supporters hoping for a host of new signings this summer are likely to be disappointed, with Wenger saying after the final game of the Premier League season he only needed "one or two" additions.

Arsene Wenger says that 2016/17 was a good season for Arsenal, despite them failing to qualify for the Champions League.

"It's what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect and we won't rest until that is achieved".

He said: "I tried to be constructive with my book and in the serialisation it was taken out of context". Some fans staged protest marches before home games in recent months calling for the manager to step down, and planes carrying "Wenger out" banners flew over the stadium during two away games.

"However, without the right support there remains a real risk his legacy will be tarnished".

Arsenal have become renowned for playing attacking, possession-based football under Wenger, but Seaman says it is time they adopt a more defensive style. "Arsene would not make this commitment if he did not believe he could push this club forward".

"Chelsea bought the best player available last season in N'Golo Kante and Arsenal went for him too but came nowhere near the salary that Chelsea pay".

Ferguson was in charge at Manchester United for more than 25 years before he called time on his glittering career at Old Trafford back in 2013.
