Arsene Wenger is determined to remain in the Arsenal hot-seat even though recent results mean they are 7/4 with bookmaker to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.
The 61-year-old Frenchman has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996 and guided them to great success in his first nine years with the club.
However, since winning the FA Cup in 2005, Arsenal have failed to claim a trophy and results such as the 8-2 mauling at Manchester United and 4-3 loss at Blackburn have added to the pressure on Wenger.
Arsenal had to come from behind to beat League Two side Shrewsbury Town 3-1 in the third round of the Carling Cup last night, a competition the Gunners are 8/1 to win this season.
After the game, Wenger said: “I am not bothered at all by this speculation. I have had 14 years at this club and kept them 14 years in the Champions League. I hope it lasts another 14.”
