Wenger Contract To Be Signed 'Soon'

Wenger Contract To Be Signed 'Soon'

Before Wenger's red and white army took to the pitch to clinch a vital 2-0 first leg advantage in the third round Champions League qualifier, the Arsenal gaffer revealed that he's only a matter of days away from signing a new contract with the Gunners.

Many had speculated that Wenger would leave Arsenal after over ten years at the helm when his current contract expires next summer. However the Arsenal boss believes he is building something exciting in North London, and will see his new project through to the end.

While no official quotes have appeared on the interweb this evening, I can reveal that in an interview with Setanta sports channel Le Boss spoke of his pride for his young team, and when pressed on the subject of whether he would sign his new contract he stated 'Soon'. He then went on to quip that the English language meant the word 'soon' could be days, weeks or even months, however on this ocasion he says an announcement will be made in a matter of days.

Great start to the season, Man Utd & Spurs spluttering away, and now Arsene Wenger to commit his future to our club.

Happy Days!

Beautiful, just what we need to keep the spirit in the team at the moment going! To be honest i never doubted it but thought he might wait a while to use his signing on as a boost to the team around December when the fixtures come fast and we have some tough games but this should shut the press up when it goes through. Crisis, what crisis?

Did anyone else see the Warner **** up in their game against Bolton, it would definetly rival Lehmann's for incredible 'keeper **** up of the season. Why did he have to play so well against us?

Good news though it has been expected for the past few weeks. He did say that it would be signed before August in an earlier interview, so a matter of days indeed.

i actually want buggerov to stay fit as well as most of their players so there are no excuses... he(buggerov) is playing a bit like henry did last season sulky and disinterested.
