Speaking to the media on Friday ahead of their FA Cup game against Hull, Arsene Wenger was asked if he’d have left Arsenal had they lost the cup final.
Signing a new deal after they picked up the trophy, the Arsenal manager was out of contract in the summer but has confirmed that his future was not determined by the final result.
“To walk where? No. I have just won my 600th game out of 1,000. That means I have won 60 per cent of the games and, after 18 years, it would not be serious to walk away for losing one game. I do my job as well as I can and I respect my contracts.
“We didn’t win a trophy for years and of course people want that. As well, 2-0 down after 10 minutes and they nearly scored the third. When you know football, normally that means you have very little chance to win so the fact we could turn it around and win was a fantastic relief.”
