Im not a young man, Im a very young man: Arsene Wenger

Noah Ferguson | 30 May, 2017, 08:46

A 2-1 defeat by London rivals Arsenal on Saturday cost Chelsea the second Premier League and FA Cup double in the club's history.

Not only should Arsene Wenger's future finally be decided, but there are plenty of other issues to be discussed as well - some of which could have a major impact on the entire club's future.

Wenger is reported to have been offered a new contract but when asked if he knows what will happen, he replied: "No".

Wenger revealed after the game that the Arsenal board will hold a meeting on Tuesday, with his future expected to be decided.

He was all smiles though as he joined the ecstatic celebrations on the Wembley pitch where Aaron Ramsey's late header ensured Arsenal have now won three of the last four FA Cups after an interminable 10-year trophy drought. It's for me afterwards to decide, if they want me, whether it's yes or no, " he said.

Wenger sees only what he wants to see. It is a bad day and a shame because we wanted to win.

"But I went into the game saying to myself, "There is nothing to expect, everyone has written me off already" and I went through my normal routine - 15 years and you never forget".

Per Mertesacker says his critics helped him to produce an impressive display which guided Arsenal to FA Cup glory against Chelsea as captain in his first start for over a year. The Gunners do need to change their approach to both the transfer market and the wage structure. "They surprised us a bit, but our first 25 minutes weren't good".

Riyad Mahrez - The Times claim the Gunners and Tottenham will battle it out for the Algerian worldwide, who was highly influential in helping Leicester win the Premier League in 2016.

Wenger's ability to find some form in a disastrous season is promising, although only slightly, and support of the players will likely give him the board's blessing to get the team back to the top of the League and into Champions League football over the next two season.

Wenger takes charge of Arsenal in 1996.

Arsenal have won the FA Cup three times in the last four seasons and Ramsey has now bagged the victor twice.

Perhaps more competent leadership would have cleared up far sooner whether Wenger was staying.

'Next season will be another tough season for all the teams, ' Conte told Chelsea's official website.

As well as handball, there was a suspicion that Ramsey, standing metres offside but deemed not to be interfering, had made a move towards the ball.
