Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger agrees new two-year contract

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has agreed a new two-year contract,
extending his 21-year reign at the club. Wenger and club owner Stan
Kroenke met on Monday to determine the Frenchman's future, with the
decision relayed to directors at a Tuesday board meeting.

Arsenal are planning to make an official announcement on Wednesday.
The Gunners were fifth in the Premier League this season, the first
time they have finished outside the top four since the Frenchman
joined in 1996. They finished 18 points behind champions Chelsea, but
beat the Blues 2-1 to win the FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday. Wenger's
contract was set to finish at the end of the current campaign. Feast
and then famine Wenger led the Gunners to three Premier League titles
and four FA Cups in his first nine seasons in charge.

In 2003-04, he became the first manager since 1888-89 to lead a team
through an entire top-flight season unbeaten. But after winning the
2005 FA Cup, they had to wait another nine years – or 3,283 days – for
their next silverware. It came as they beat Hull City to win the 2014
FA Cup, before winning the trophy again the following year. Some
Gunners fans turned on the 67-year-old Frenchman as a result of their
league performances and they lost 10-2 on aggregate to Bayern Munich
in the Champions League last 16 in March.

They finished the league season with five successive victories, but it
was not enough to carry them above Liverpool to take the fourth and
final Champions League spot. Wenger told BBC's Football Focus on
Saturday the criticism he has faced this season is "a disgrace" he
will "never forget". Anti-Wenger banners were held aloft by Gunners
fans in the closing stages of a 3-1 defeat at West Brom on 18 March,
while in the first half two planes towed banners over the ground – one
criticising the manager and the other supporting him. After that loss,
Wenger said he had made a decision on his future which he would
announce "very soon".

He faced significant criticism around that time, with former Blackburn
and Celtic striker Chris Sutton telling BBC Radio 5 live on 20 March
that Wenger was "an uncle who doesn't want to leave the party" and was
running a "dictatorship". Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, meanwhile,
described Wenger as "one of the best managers in history".
