Arsene Wenger: Wants to stay on at Arsenal past 2014

Arsene Wenger has again ruled out leaving Arsenal before the end of his contract - and hinted for the first time he would like to stay on past 2014.

The Gunners boss, 63, still has another season left to run on his current deal, but has been linked with a summer switch to big-spending Paris St Germain.

Wenger, though, stressed his only focus was on securing Arsenal a top-four finish in the Barclays Premier League again and then planning to further strengthen the squad in the transfer window, with the best part of a £100million warchest at his disposal.

Speaking at Friday morning's media conference ahead of the trip to relegated QPR, Wenger said: "I answered that question already. I respect my contracts.

"I want to stay (on past 2014) if I do well and if I consider or the club considers that I do well, that is all.

"I want this club to do well, that is my basic feeling.

"We have gone through a period that was very sensitive, we are coming out of it now, in a much stronger position financially.

"I believe the club is in a very strong position for the future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
