Wenger not going anywhere

Arsene Wenger has no doubt that he will still be the Arsenal manager at the start of next season despite coming under pressure from supporters to step down.

Arsenal quest for a third successive FA Cup were ended by Watford before they were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Barcelona, while they have won only one of their last four Premier League games to leave them 11 points behind leaders Leicester.

Their form has raised questions about Wenger's future at The Emirates but the Frenchman is adamant he will not be going anywhere.

"I have no doubt because I am committed and when I do something I do it 100 per cent. I am always committed to give my best as long as I am at the club. I don't worry too much about the rest, what other people say," Wenger told beIN Sports.

"All the rest is judgements, opinions... In my job you focus on what is important which is to perform. I believe in life it is very important you focus on what you are appointed for and I am appointed to perform and do the best for my club. That's all I focus on. My future is my future."

Wenger has been disappointed by some of the criticism but is confident he is giving all he can to the club.

"I think the criticism during the season is not very welcome when you fight for the championship. Especially after the Tottenham game (a 2-2 draw) when we were a bit lucky, but you have to live with it," Wenger added.

"I have my conscience. What is most important is I give my best every day, I work for my club that I love and if I can share that love with the supporters then it is better. But at the end of the day I want to make sure I give my best and I put my knowledge at the disposal of my team."
