Arsene Wenger is intent on seeing out his current contract with Arsenal after reminding people he turned down big offers to stay at the club.
Wenger’s future is under the spotlight once more thanks to Arsenal’s poor form this season.
Reports emerged about how Wenger’s position would be reviewed in the summer, with all options supposedly being open.
Amid talk of him possibly leaving the club, the manager was keen to remind people that he always sees out his contracts.

“I always respected my contracts, I would like to remind you,” he told beIN Sports.
“I said no to all the clubs in the world, all the biggest clubs in the world to respect my contract. That’s always what I try to do.
“We have as well to accept in our job the future is the future, but for me the future is to win the next game.”
With the way this season has gone, there would be few fans who would want Wenger to stay until 2019.
Many would be hoping to see the club push Wenger out if he didn’t leave himself.
Still, this season might not end up being a barren one for him.
The club has the chance to win the Carabao Cup when they play Manchester City in the final at the end of the month.
Arsenal coming out of this season with a cup double would be unexpected, but might do just enough to keep Wenger in the job for that final year of his contract.
