Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger Arsene Wenger has admitted uncertainty over his future as the club after failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.
Arsenal ended this season’s league with a 3-1 home win over Everton on Sunday, but Liverpool’s 3-0 victory against Middlesbrough oust Arsenal out of the top four.
“It is annoying (to miss out on the Champions League), but we had a spell during the season that was difficult and it was difficult for me in my personal situation,” he said.
“We were playing in a hostile environment. The players came back stronger in the last two months and I’m very proud of them for doing that,” Wenger said.
While Wenger accepted the uncertainty about his future had been counter-productive, he said his commitment to Arsenal could not be questioned.
“I was focused on my job. I am professional,” said the Frenchman, who has been in place since September 1996.
“I love this club enough to do my best every single day. One thing you cannot question is my love for this club. I’ve turned down every club in the world to stay here.”
Arsenal will be playing Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.
