With a lot of speculation about his future as Arsenal coach lately, the long-serving mentor has shunned speculation he might be leaving the club this season. Sixty-eight-year-old Arsene Wenger insists he will remain in charge of the gunners until at least until the coming year. Carlo Ancelotti has been linked to the gunners as a potential successor after Wenger, with Wenger's future coming under renewed scrutiny amid the club's ongoing major restructuring. The club's restructuring is because of time running out on star duo Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, with both only six months remaining on their contracts.

Ozil will stay while Sanchez is leaving

The club is said to be very optimistic about the possibility of Ozil re-signing and extending his stay at the club.

As for Sanchez, Wenger admitted he will be sold this month owing to his refusal to extend his deal which would keep him at the club for the next few seasons.

The Arsenal boss got into a similar position last season when scores of fans demanded that the club end Wenger's reign at the helm. His future during that period became a weekly discussion and a repeat of this is something he appears anxious to avoid at all costs hence he took some pinning down.

Wenger however, made it very clear that he will remain in charge stating that he is always committed having being charge of the club for twenty-one years. Concerning the duration of his stay at the club, he said every decision he makes is right for the club. He said whether he is in charge or somebody else is, one can only do what's best for the club.

Wenger will still be in charge next season

Asked if he will Be In charge of the team next season, the sixty-eight year old said his contract clarifies that. About the future of Sanchez in particular, Wenger, although claiming the club wants to keep the star, appears to have thrown in the towel. Wenger also insists there is an opportunity for Ozil to stay at the club, citing the player's desire to win and also to make money. He says Ozil wants to fight as well for the Premier League.

Some of the club's notable changes include Sven Mislintat, and Raul Sanllehi an ex-Barcelona chief executive who is now their head of football relations and Huss Fahmy who would oversee the team's contract negotiations

Bottom line though, Wenger is going nowhere yet!
