Wenger hints at new contract offer

Last Updated: Fri, 18 Oct 2013 11:40

Arsene Wenger has hinted that he has been offered a new contract by Arsenal, but refused to be drawn on when he might sign up.

Wenger's current Gunners deal runs out at the end of this season and reports suggest he has been offered the option of extending his stay at the Emirates by another two years.

He said: "I didn't deny that [there has been an offer]. I said many times I don't think there is any need to come back on. I answered that question already. I said what I said when I was asked this question at the start of the season. Nothing has changed."

Wenger has also insisted he did not promise the club's shareholders at Thursday's AGM that Arsenal would finish this season as trophy winners but just that he wants the fans to be happy come the end of the campaign.

He added: "I said [at the AGM] I want everyone to be happy by the end of May. That is of course the target of any manager. I can't imagine any manager would not want the fans to be unhappy at the end of the season.

"That's what we work so hard for. You can call that what you want. We just want to win our next game."
