LONDON – Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has not yet decided on his future, with his contract due to expire at the end of next season, the Frenchman said on Friday.
He denied any knowledge of British media reports that he would be offered a new deal.
The Times said on Friday that the club’s American majority shareholder Stan Kroenke had prepared a new two-year deal.
“I don’t know where the information has come from, you can treat that as an invention,” Wenger told a news conference ahead of Sunday’s final Premier League game at home to relegated Aston Villa.
The experienced Wenger, 66, who joined the north London club in 1996 and has led it to a top-four finish in every full season, indicated he would at least see out the remaining year of his contract.
“I am committed with integrity for as long as I am under contract,” he said. “I will see where I am personally and where the club stands.”
Asked if he had decided on his future, he replied: “No.”
