Arsene Wenger's future at Arsenal set to be revealed on Wednesday

Arsenal

"I'm proud having done this - winning the championship without losing and winning seven FA Cups", Wenger said.

In the ongoing saga of the contract negotiations between Arsenal and Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, the club was reportedly ready to make one final, gold-plated push for the duo.

Arsenal will most probably finish outside the top four again next season because they are further behind their rivals than Arsene Wenger thinks, says Gary Lineker.

In the midst of those protests, the club endured a turbulent spell as Arsenal crashed out of the Champions League following a 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in February and suffered crushing away defeats against Liverpool, West Brom and Crystal Palace.

The BBC reported that this get together was not a formal board meeting, but a gathering at which Wenger's future will be discussed by the club's directors.

"Two weeks ago I was on holiday - I didn't expect to play", he said.

Wenger will outline his plans for close-season signings and while there may still be some tinkering with his backroom staff it will not be without his approval. "I don't know but for sure you must think that there is a lot of tension in those moments and sometimes you could be exhausted".


Following that victory at Wembley, Wenger was asked if he would be preparing a presentation ahead of the meeting and the Frenchman said: "The best presentation is to watch the game".

"Sometimes I think it could be tiredness and I don't think - and I repeat - if my player dived he did it with the real intention to do this".

Gazidis insists the growth of Arsenal has been significant over recent years, but says the club are not taking anything for granted.

"The behaviour of some people during the season, that is what hurts me most".

'I didn't fear the worst, not at all, ' he told Arsenal's website.

But Wenger, and his Arsenal players, redeemed their campaign to secure a record 13th FA Cup success for the club.

"Otherwise, it is total incompetence from the board to get to this stage". The only bit of advice I have for young coaches, if you have a tendency to be paranoid don't do this job. I thought I was playing very well in the last few months.
