Arsene Wenger insists he won’t be leaving Arsenal in the summer and has warned fans against creating a “negative atmosphere” against West Brom on Thursday night.
Following another campaign without a trophy, there is growing discontent from the terraces and some fans have called on the long-serving manager to quit the club.
And now the north London side face a battle to stay in the Champions League places with Manchester United only four points behind with five games of the season left.
However, the Frenchman still has 12 months left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium and remains defiant over his future at the club.
“I always respect my contract,” he told reporters.
Meanwhile, reports suggest as many as 20,000 supporters could choose to skip the West Brom match as part of a boycott against Arsenal’s poor performances.
“I want our fans to be happy when they’re not, it affects me,” admitted Wenger.
“We don’t want a negative environment but we must still perform.”
