Wenger set to extend Arsenal stay

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed he is on the brink of signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

The 60-year-old Frenchman's deal is due to run out at the end of this term, but he says a new contract is on the table ahead of the start of the new season.

"I have to show as well how much I believe in this team by showing my commitment," said Wenger. "My situation will be sorted out very soon."

Wenger has won 11 trophies in 13 years, but nothing since the FA Cup in 2005.

Arsenal begin their campaign for a first Premier League title since 2004 with a tricky trip away to Roy Hodgson's Liverpool on Sunday.

Wenger added: "I believe my commitment to the club has nothing do with the speculation of how the season would go, because that would be unfair.

"If I do not do well, and one day the club is not happy with me I can completely understand that I do not stay here any more. But I believe we will do well."

Wenger joined Arsenal in September 1996 and set about revolutionising the north London outfit, winning the league in 1998, 2002 and 2004, the FA Cup in 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2005 and reaching the Champions League and Uefa Cup finals.
