Wenger To Decide Future After FA Cup Final, Dismisses Adams Criticism

Antonio Conte says discussions about his future will wait until the end of the season

Sunderland, following an abysmal performance last weekend against Swansea, did a credible job facing Arsenal at London's Emirates Stadium, holding the Gunners at bay until the 72nd minute, when forward Alexis Sanchez hammered in a cross from Mesut zil.

"In a football club today, you have to employ people who can help you to be successful".

"One of them is, of course, what is happening with the manager, the future, the players who have to come in, the renewal of contracts". After that what happens to me is less important.

Arsenal's failure to sustain a title challenge over the past decade and repeated UEFA Champions League exits at the last-16 stage-which are frequently humiliating to boot-have increased calls for Wenger to step down from many Gunners fans.

With one game remaining in the league, they face a battle to qualify for the Champions League as they are now in fifth position, a point adrift of Liverpool in fourth and three behind third-placed Manchester City, albeit with an inferior goal difference of five.

On their chances on reaching a Premier League top four finish, Wenger whose side are fifth and need Liverpool and Manchester City to drop points said:. So, this is the real test of our character and if truly we are willing to bounce back to good times, this is where we should start to prove it, ahead of next season.

Arsenal are still without the injured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while centre-back Laurent Koscielny is a doubt with a calf problem.

While the full contents of the book will likely reveal more as Adams seemingly isn't pulling his punches, it sounds as though Wenger is far from impressed with what the 50-year-old's had to say based on his comments at his press conference on Friday.

Wenger has been under growing supporter pressure to step down following a disappointing season that included a humiliating 10-2 aggregate loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The likes of Thierry Henry, Lee Dixon, Martin Keown, Ian Wright and Paul Merson have all questioned whether he should go on beyond his current contract. "I'm quite surprised. I want to absolutely make sure that we are in there but after that let's get to 75 points and see what happens".

My Story. My Life is being serialised in The Sun, told the tabloid that Wenger is "essentially not a coach" and "couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag". And though I modified that in the final article it didn't go down well.

The FA Cup is our only hope of a trophy this year, but I care more about it being Arsene Wengers third chance; his last chance for a happy ending.
