Arsene Wenger will continue to stay at Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is under heavy pressure to quit his post after 21 years in charge of the club.

He will go down in history as the greatest Arsenal manager and I think he wants to manage for another five or six years by the sounds of it. As of right now, Arsenal sit sixth in the Premier League standings and are in real danger of not qualifying for next year's Champions League, which requires a top-four finish.

A mass "Wenger Out" protest was held prior to their Champions League second leg mauling to Bayern, while a banner flew over their defeat at West Brom at the weekend saying 'No Contract #WengerOut'.

Speaking after the game, Wenger said he had made up his mind about his future and would make his intentions public "very soon".

It has been reported a compromise deal could be in the offing, with the existing two-year contract offer downgraded to a 12-month deal.

'It will not necessarily be linked with (a Champions League place) because I've done the top four 20 times.

West Brom striker Hal Robson-Kanu was pleased to make an impact during his side's 3-1 win over Arsenal.

What must be said, though, is that the club are making a mess of this even if they insist a decision would be "mutual".

These two banners show just how much Wenger has divided Arsenal supporters. "I believe again it's very hard to take these things seriously". 'It's not the last result that will decide what I will do.

"I watch the game, I do not watch the stands", said Wenger.

Arsenal's next match is a Premier League clash at the Emirates against Manchester City on April 2, but Sanchez has been named in Chile's squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Venezuela.

Arsene Wenger: stubborn till the end. "I've talked enough about that".
