MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal’s American owner Stan Kroenke on Thursday broke his media silence in light of speculation over the future of Coach Arsene Wenger, whose contract expires next summer. In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Kroenke said, "There's no one I feel more strongly about and he is doing a great job. We have been very supportive, we have never wavered, we are proud of him, proud of the club, the way the club is run and how it holds itself out to the world." He added: "Arsène knows how we feel, what our philosophy is, what we want to do and I feel like we are totally aligned. I think he wants to do it the exact same way as we do."

The Frenchman reacted to Kroenke’s comments by saying he “would love to be [at Arsenal] forever because that would make me immortal.” Speaking ahead of Arsenal’s away trip to Swansea on Saturday, Wenger said, "I love this club. I always said that you work like you are here forever and know that it can end every day. I'm very honored to have the support of Stan Kroenke. That is something that is very positive for me." Wenger added that he believes the current squad he’s built can win titles, and has turned down many offers in order to stick with the Gunners.
