Will Wenger stay at Arsenal until they win the league?

Wenger took over at Arsenal in 1996 and has since won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups - the latter a record for a single manager.

But Wenger feels Arsenal can achieve anything they set their minds on heading into next season now his future has been sorted.

The just concluded Premier League season was baptized with lots of criticism for the Frenchman by many Arsenal fans, most especially after the Gunners failed to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Adams believes part of the reason Wenger will continue is because the Arsenal hierarchy are unwilling to challenge him.

Announcing the news today (Wednesday), majority owner Stan Kroenke said: "Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe". Everything we do is created to make that happen and we will be working hard on and off the pitch this summer to improve and make a strong challenge next season. "He has a fantastic track record and has our full backing".

Wenger recently labelled certain sections of the Arsenal support a "disgrace" after the increasing abuse that has been subjected to over the course of the last few months.

"I love this club and I am looking forward to the future with optimism and excitement", said Wenger.

Nine wins from their final 10 matches saw the Gunners turn what looked like a disappointing season into a somewhat positive one with Saturday's FA Cup success moving Arsenal ahead of Manchester United as the most successful team in the competition's history.

Former England striker Gary Lineker said Arsenal were lagging behind their domestic rivals and could struggle to attract top quality players to the Emirates this summer without Champions League football on offer next season. Everything we do is created to make that happen and we will be working hard on and off the pitch this summer to improve and make a strong challenge next season.

Those fans who have called for the Frenchman to leave may fall silent now but if the new talent and improved results do not come quickly, their voices will surely return. They have been close to success in the Premier League in recent years, but the flaws in the squad continually scupper title ambitions and, as the man who identifies players, signs and selects them, Wenger can not escape culpability.
