Wenger agrees two-year contract extension at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger has agreed to a new two-year deal to remain as Arsenal manager, according to United Kingdom media reports.

Wenger met Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis on Monday to discuss his future before his contract expires next month.

Wenger's contract was set to finish at the end of the current campaign. By signing a new contract, Wenger - who had been earning £8.9 million per year - extends his Gunners tenure to 23 years.

While they were almost 20 points behind league champions Chelsea FC during the regular season, they took home a 2-1 victory over the Blues at the FA Cup this weekend.

Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams has called on Arsene Wenger to leave the club in a bid to avoid tarnishing his reputation.

But since then, their form in the league and especially the Champions League has taken a huge dip.

Finishing fifth and having to kiss goodbye to another last 16 defeat to Bayern Munich in next season's Champions League might well have been a bitter pill to swallow for Arsenal supporters.

The 67-year-old also became the most successful coach in FA Cup history overtaking George Ramsay, who won six FA Cups with Aston Villa between 1887 and 1920.

Wenger told BBC's Football Focus on Saturday the criticism he has faced this season is "a disgrace" he will "never forget". That likely played a big part in Wenger's considerable security with the side, as he's managed to earn his extension just days after the victory. I love to build, I love to get people going and I love what I do. "Sometimes I think it could be tiredness", Conte said.

The only other example of a manager that decides when and where he goes is Sir Alex Ferguson, but he was still winning league titles.
