But they finished fifth, 18 points behind the Blues in the Premier League, last season to miss out on the Champions League for the first time under Wenger.

But after leading Arsenal to an impressive 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Premier League champions Chelsea with Kroenke watching from the stands on Saturday, Wenger had hinted he was willing to stay.

Maybe in the next two years he will have a legacy and he will get a transition of new coaches coming through.

Following the successful two-year extension of Arsene Wenger's contract at Arsenal, the club's minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov has told the board to give enough support to the Frenchman to deliver.

"It could possibly all crumble around him, and I think that would be very sad".

"I believe there's a difference between being criticised and being treated in a way that human beings don't deserve", he said.

Arsenal have become renowned for playing attacking, possession-based football under Wenger, but Seaman says it is time they adopt a more defensive style. I don't want that spoiled.

Majority owner Stan Kroenke said the club's "ambition" was to "win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe". "It would be so sad".

Wenger is the longest tenured manager in the English Premier League, having been with the club for two decades.

Defensive actions and goals conceded - Wenger's men were poor at the back, though, shipping eight more goals (44) than the previous campaign, and averaging six fewer defensive actions per game (41).

"He's in charge and we're now expecting some significant signings and I would love to see the team progress".

After extending his contract at Arsenal till 2019, Wenger has told the fans that together, they can take the club till the next level.

Despite a woeful season redeemed slightly by winning the FA Cup against Chelsea last weekend, Wenger is still under fire, with many surprised he is staying on when it seemed likely he would leave.

"With Sanchez and Ozil we don't want to be losing that quality of player". We have the right person for that and I know Arsene is committed to that. For years a top-four finish was good enough, but the people have spoken.
