Arsene Wenger admits that he expects his future at Arsenal to be resolved soon.
The Frenchman’s current contract expire next summer, prompting fears over his long-term commitment to the club. However, Wenger has hinted that he is prepared to sign a new deal, as he expects his maturing side to start fulfilling their potential in the coming years.
“I have to show as well how much I believe in this team by showing my commitment,” said Wenger.
“My situation will be sorted out very soon.
“It is more a question about timing, and all the other ingredients which are in a contract will be easy to short out.
“I believe my commitment to the club has nothing do with the speculation of how the season would go, because that would be unfair,” he said.
“If I do not do well, and one day the club is not happy with me I can completely understand that I do not stay here any more. But I believe we will do well.”
Wenger has set his sights firmly on the Premier League title this season.
“What will be success is to improve from last year, which is to win the league – that is the only benchmark,” the Gunners boss added.
“You cannot finish third and then say for the season after, you want to finish behind that.
“We are a young side and the improvement is natural – the ambition is there, we are hungry for success.
“We know people want more from us and we are ready to give more, but success is to win the league.”
