Arsene Wenger: I respect always my contract

Wenger intends to stay at the Emirates

Arsene Wenger insists he has no plans to leave Arsenal this summer and says he intends to “respect” his contract with the club.

Arsenal have endured a miserable 2016, winning just twice at the Emirates, falling away in the race for the Premier League title and exiting the Champions league and FA Cup, which has led to numerous protests by the majority of the clubs fans.

The Gunners are now in a battle to secure a top-four finish, but Wenger is adamant that he will remain at the club.

"I do not want to come back on that, I respect always my contract," Wenger said when asked about remaining in charge.

"I've just answered your question," the Arsenal manager snapped when pressed on his future.

Reports on Wednesday claimed that more than 2,500 tickets for Thursday’s game against West Brom have been made available by Arsenal season ticket holders, however, the Frenchman remained unmoved.

"Look, everybody is free to do what they want with their season ticket," Wenger added.

"We have to live with that. It's a Thursday night, it's unusual. We just had a disappointing result at home, maybe that plays a part as well. First of all it's not experienced yet and we have to live with that.

"But we have to take that with distance as well, and focus on our job. The emotional part in our game is always very high but changes very quickly as well.

"Judgement from people is something we have to live with. It's down to us to change that belief and judgement."
