Wenger's future to be decided after Cup final


Arsene Wenger's future will be resolved at an Arsenal board meeting after the FA Cup final, the Gunners manager has revealed.

Wenger's contract is due to expire in the summer and he has yet to announce whether he will sign a new deal with the club despite previously indicating that he would reveal his intentions in April.

A number of fans have called for Wenger to bring his 21-year tenure to an end after a disappointing season which looks set to end with the Gunners missing out on Champions League qualification for the first time under the Frenchman.

Arsenal face Everton in their final Premier League game of the campaign before an FA Cup final date with champions Chelsea after which Wenger's position will be discussed.

"I cannot tell you (about my future). The most important thing is to win on Sunday and what happens to me after can wait. I'm here to serve the club," Wenger told reporters on Friday.

"I think the board meeting is after the FA Cup final. I will be there. At the moment I think we should focus on the short-term; on the last game and the cup final.

"There are lots of different aspects of a football club that have to be discussed at a board meeting and one of them will be the manager's future, as well as the players that have to come in, the contracts and all of that. You don't miss problems in a board meeting."

When asked if Sunday's match would be his last at the Emirates, Wenger replied: "This season, yes."
