Wenger sticks around

After endless speculation over the summer of a potential move abroad to Real Madrid after this season, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has signed a new contract that will see him stay with the club for another 3 seasons.

The official announcement will be made tomorrow.

Arsenal have been in talks with Wenger over an extension for the last few months and speculation was rife that David Dein’s departure from the club was going to trigger Wenger’s exodus as well. Whether something in the back room is brewing or the sting of losing Dein has worn off the manager, I don’t know, but I’d suggest the former is true.

Arsenal have made an impressive start to the new season, this comes as a large boost for everyone at the club as Wenger has been instrumental in the last decade’s success. Arsenal currently sit second in the table behind Liverpool and have earned a place in the Champions League group stages.

The new deal will earn Wenger 4m pounds annually putting him right at the top of the earnings heap for managers.
