Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger agrees two-year contract

Looks like “Wenger Out” will not be happening anytime soon as Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed a new two-year contract, extending his 21-year reign at the club.

This outcome was decided when Wenger and club owner Stan Kroenke met on Monday with the decision relayed to directors at a Tuesday board meeting.

Arsenal will make an official announcement on Wednesday.

There was a a lot of speculation that it was time for the Frenchman to leave, especially after finishing fifth in the Premier League this season, the first time they have finished outside the top four since the Wenger joined in 1996.

They finished 18 points behind champions Chelsea, but beat the Blues 2-1 to win the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday.

Wenger’s contract was set to finish at the end of the current campaign.
