Giroud urges Wenger to renew Arsenal deal

Giroud urges Wenger to renew Arsenal deal

It remains to be seen what the French tactician decides to do as he has yet to make an official decision, although updates are expected sooner rather than later.

That is the question on everyone's lips regarding Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Following the Saturday's defeat at West Brom, a fourth league defeat in five matches, Wenger said he has decided whether to stay with Arsenal when his contract expires at the end of the season.

But, will he sign it? Wenger said the club were not aware of his decision and nothing would be announced during the worldwide break.

But Wenger said after defeat to the Baggies that he does not think qualifying for Europe's elite club competition is the be-all and end-all for the club.

One quick perusal of Twitter will tell you everything you need to know about the reaction to suggestions that Wenger is actually going nowhere.

Many fans would think that, after such a bad result, that decision would be to leave the club. "It's more, it's not that", said the Arsenal boss, according to ESPN FC.

"We lose game after game at the moment and that for me is much more important than my future", he added.

Arsene Wenger has rubbished reports that Arsenal assistant manager Boro Primorac and Gunners defender Hector Bellerin want to leave the troubled Premier League club. When Craig Dawson opened the scoring for the home side, one flew over the stadium trailing a banner with "Wenger out" emblazoned on it.

Arsenal also have league games against both Manchester clubs and Tottenham before the end of the season, which could salvage some pride, but realistically only a title or Champions League challenge could have won over supporters this season.

However, there's no doubt that some Gooners want Wenger to extend his stay come the summer.

However, another later proclaimed "In Arsene We Trust #RESPECTAW".

Plenty of fans will not be happy to hear there will be no managerial change in store for next season if the Arsenal board grant Wenger his wish and keep him on, however.

It will not necessarily be linked with the top four because I've done that 20 times.

Only time will tell whether Pulis' claim has any truth to it.
