Arsene Wenger is determined to make more history at Arsenal after signing a new three-year deal which extends his stay at the club until 2017.
The deal will see Wenger, who led Arsenal to FA Cup glory last season ending a nine-year spell without silverware, pass the 20-year mark in the Arsenal hotseat.
With Wenger out of contract in the summer, speculation had surrounded his future towards the end of the season, although he had insisted he was going nowhere even if Arsenal had lost to Hull at Wembley.
“I want to stay and to continue to develop the team and the club,” Wenger, who has taken charge of 1,010 Arsenal matches and won three Premier League titles and five FA Cups, told the club’s official site.
“We are entering a very exciting period. We have a strong squad, financial stability and huge support around the world. We are all determined to bring more success to this club.
“The club has always shown faith in me and I’m very grateful for that. We have gone through fantastic periods and also periods where we have had to stick together.
“Every time when that togetherness was tested I got the right response. I think I have shown some loyalty as well towards this club and hopefully we can make some more history. I am sure we can.”
