Arsene Wenger says a remark hinting at a post-season review of his position, made at last month’s AGM, has been taken out of context and that his conversation with the board won’t be out of the ordinary.
The confusion, if we can call it that, stems from a remark towards the end of his annual address at October’s feisty meeting between fans and club officials.
“I question myself a lot, don’t worry, to be better every single day,” he said at the time. “And I will sit down every year with my board to see where I go from there.”
Questioned about the line by beIN SPORTS, the boss, whose current contract lasts until June 2019, clarified that he maintains an ambition to see it through to the end.
“I said I sit down with the board at every end of season and see where we will go from there, so that’s not exactly the same,” he said.

“Sometimes as well, you make a sentence and people turn it the way they would like to go.
“I have a two-year contract, I will always try to go to the end of my contract, but will always have the honesty to sit down with the board and to see where we go from there. That’s quite simple.”
