Wenger sets the record straight

Arsene Wenger has played down suggestions that he is ready to stand down as Arsenal manager at the end of this season.

Former Gunners striker Ian Wright had said on Friday that the 67-year-old Frenchman had given him the impression that he was tired and keen to end his 20-year tenure at the club.

Arsenal beat Hull City 2-0 on Saturday lunchtime after suffering back-to-back defeats to Watford and Chelsea, and Wenger was keen to set the record straight after the match.

"I could have been tired because I get up early in the morning and I finish late at night," he said. "So sometimes I am tired, yes, but I didn't give any indication of my future.

"It was questions and answers. We had a little dinner before, but it was not the two of us. We were four or five.

"I appreciate very much that you want me to rest absolutely, but I am not ready for that."

Alexis Sanchez scored both of the goals against the Tigers who had Sam Clucas sent off in the closing stages.

Arsenal are 6/1 to finish in the top four this season while Hull City can be backed at 12/1 not to be relegated.
