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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
