Arsene Wenger says he’s “excited about the future of Arsenal” after signing a new two-year deal, and is determined to sustain a league challenge next season.

Speaking to Arsenal’s official website, the Frenchman reiterated his unwavering love for the Gunners, and thanks the club’s majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, for his continued support.

“I love this club and I am looking forward to the future with optimism and excitement,” he said.

“We are looking at what we do well and how we can be stronger everywhere. This is a strong group of players and with some additions we can be even more successful. We’re committed to mounting a sustained league challenge and that will be our focus this summer and next season.

“I am grateful to have the support of the board and Stan in doing everything we can to win more trophies. It’s what we all want and I know it’s what our fans around the world demand.”

The 67-year-old also revealed that he’s not only optimistic over the future but excited to get started.

A report from the BBC’s David Ornstein earlier in the day claimed that this might not even be Wenger’s last deal with Arsenal, which could see him overtake Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure at Manchester United.

However, for the moment, let’s hope the club can do its best to rebuild this summer with Wenger at the helm.
