Arsene Wenger rules out any chance of quitting Arsenal for return to Monaco
Wenger's contract runs out at the end of the season but he has always said he would stay on
Monday 12 May 2014
After Arsenal's 2-0 victory at Norwich today in their final league match of the season, Gunners manager Arsene Wenger ruled out any chance of him taking charge of French side Monaco next season.
Wenger's contract expires at the end of the season, although the 64-year-old has always stressed that he would extend his deal at the Emirates.
Reports this morning speculated that Monaco were tabling a lucrative offer for Wenger, who took charge at Stade Louis II between 1987 and 1994, but he said after today's win at Carrow Road: "Yes. I wish Monaco well, but there is no interest there."
The Frenchman will now turn his focus to next weekend's FA Cup final against Hull City, as the Gunners hope to end their nine-year trophy drought.
