Arsene Wenger has shrugged off questions about his future, saying that he’s sure his position is fixed until the end of June at least.
What happens with the Frenchman after that remains to be seen, and much will depend on how the rest of this season pans out.
However, he says that for now he knows what’s happening, and that his gut will tell him what’s going to happen next.
“My future has always been certain,” he said. “I focus 100% until the last day of my contract.
“That is the only way you can guarantee the future. It is not all quantifiable. It is linked with your gut feeling, as well. Thank you.”
Wenger has come in for intense criticism after the 2-1 defeat to Watford on Tuesday, but says coping with that is something all modern managers have to deal with.
“We live in a society that is like that and it is difficult for me to change that,”he said.
“I focus on what I can influence. I live with the response of society. You [the media] are more the captors of what is going on in society.
“Do we go the right way? Maybe. But if you look at society all over the world, we are not really sure.
“Is it worse than it was five or 10 years ago?
“Yes, of course, because everybody can express their frustrations in the fraction of a second, and there is no time to take any distance from what happened.”
Of course the best way to quiet that down is to win games, and if Arsenal can do that tomorrow, the title challenge remains alive.
