Arsene Wenger has admitted that he did momentarily contemplate not signing a new deal with Arsenal, but deep down he knew he would put pen to paper on a new deal.
The Frenchman ended months of speculation about his future last week when he signed a new deal that ties him to the club for another four years.
“I am more committed than ever to do well for the club and I want to go very far with this team because I have strong belief in the players that I work with at the moment,” Wenger told Sky Sports News.
“There was some scepticism among people but I have always had strong belief in these players.
“You always wonder ‘can you do well enough for the club’ and you also have to think what kind of orientation you want to give to your life, because at every stage of your career you have to make choices about which way you want to go.
“So you think about it but there was never really any doubt.
“The fact that I can help this team to improve, the fact that I have conditions here to work the way I love to work, and the fact that I feel I can push this club high up.”
