Arsène Wenger has promised to turn Arsenal's potential into silverware after agreeing a new three-year deal to remain in charge at the Emirates Stadium. The announcement follows a difficult few months in the wake of former vice-chairman David Dein's departure and the summer sale of Thierry Henry.

"I have been entrusted with complete freedom to implement and execute my plans on what will make the team successful," said Wenger.

"That means I have a responsibility to the fans to deliver silverware and also a responsibility to the players to help turn our potential into prizes. I want to achieve the maximum with this team and it is young and very ambitious as well, and I feel I share that ambition with my team.

"That is one of the reasons, as well, that I wanted to get a taste of how hungry this team is first before I definitely go for it. I love the job I have at Arsenal – I love to win and I feel I can win with Arsenal. They are the main reasons [I signed].

"My heart is tied to this club, so signing a new deal was always my intention."
