With Arsenal preparing for a potentially make or break meeting with Manchester City Arsene Wenger’s future has obviously been discussed.

Nothing less than a win will be good enough if Arsenal are to remain in the hunt for a Champions League finish but Wenger has said he’s as committed as always despite the fact his position still hasn’t been clarified.

He is ‘clear’ in his mind what will happen but confirmed his continued role as boss is yet to be ‘sorted completely.’ Commenting in his news conference ahead of Sunday’s game Wenger was quoted by Sky Sports as saying.

‘I am very clear in my mind. Do I stay two more years? My commitment will be the same. It does not influence my attitude. I’ve always been clear in my mind. It’s a subject that is not sorted completely.’

The uncertainty surrounding his future has been used as a reason for the poor form – six defeats in the last nine have seen Arsenal knocked out of the Champions League and battling to finish in the top four for the first time under Wenger.

However, the boss has dismissed such a view saying we shouldn’t ‘look for excuses’ and the players should perform regardless.

‘I believe the priority in life is to focus on what is important. Not to look for excuses. The results aren’t going as we want. The priority is on the pitch. The big professional is to perform on the football pitch.’
