Rumours are beginning to circulate that Arsene Wenger is going to extend his contract with Arsenal from 2017 to 2019.

In all honesty, I couldn’t be happier with the news.

I’m a huge fan of Wenger and I’ve never made any secret of that. Although he’s made decisions that I’ve questioned (still not 100% sure why we loaned out Woj to Roma), I’ve always trusted him. He’s the football manager – one of the best of our time – and he knows far more than I could ever hope to.

At the moment Arsenal is in the ascendancy. We currently sit second in the Premier League on goal difference alone, with Man City in first, and our performances and form are brilliant.

Our players are all coming into their own thanks to Wenger’s unwavering faith in them and although the men on the pitch should be credited, there’s one man at the top, training them and helping them to become the players they are.

If it was up to me, Wenger would never leave.
