Arsene Wenger has given his strongest hint yet that he intends to stay on as Arsenal manager for another two years, but said the issue is “not sorted completely out.”

Wenger once again refused to make an announcement about whether he will renew his contract when it expires this summer, but reiterated that he knows what he wants to do.

He said at a news conference ahead of Sunday’s crucial Premier League game against Manchester City: “I am very clear in my mind, But anyway do I stay two months or two years? My commitment will be exactly the same. So the time I spend here does not influence at all my attitude.

“I’ve always been very clear in my mind and I will remain like that, but it’s a subject that is not sorted completely out.”

Wenger has come under heavy pressure following Arsenal’s recent slump in form that has seen the Gunners drop to sixth in the league. Some disgruntled fans have been staging protest marches before recent home games demanding that the club does not renew his deal.

Wenger had said after Arsenal’s 3-1 loss at West Brom before the international break that he had made a decision on his future and would announce it “very soon”, having previously said he would make a decision in late March or April.

But when pressed on when he will make an announcement, the Arsenal boss said: “I have nothing more than that… I spoke a lot about that and for me it’s exactly the same, I have to focus on what is important.”

He also rejected the notion that the uncertainty about his future is causing instability at the club.

“No. The priority in life is always to focus on what is important and not to look for excuses,” he said. “At the moment our results are not going the way we want, but as well we have to make sure that the priority for us is what happens on the pitch.

“Being professional is to perform on the football pitch and not to find escape excuses where I think there are not [any].”
