But following Kroenke’s public backing, Wenger joked that he would be happy to stay at the club forever and believes he would not need lengthy negotiations to agree a new contract.
“I’m very honoured to have the support of Stan Kroenke.
That is something that is very positive for me,” Wenger told reporters.
“I would love to be here forever because that would make me immortal! I love this club of course.
“The good thing with me is I don’t need a lot of talk to extend the contract I have.
“I don’t think that’s most important thing at the moment. I said I want to focus on the quality of our season
and no one can question my commitment to this club. I want to do well and the question of me staying will
be secondary for that.”
