Wenger has pledged his future to Arsenal after being linked with a move to PSGArsene Wenger has pledged his future to Arsenal after revealing he plans to see out the remaining three years of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Reports have constantly linked the Frenchman with a return to his homeland in the role of sporting director at wealthy Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain with the Gunners boss refusing to rule out a move to the Parc de Princes 12 months ago.

Wenger has been in charge in North London since 1996 and has conceded that he has acted in an advisory role for Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar and owner of PSG.

However, speaking before Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Marseille, the 61-year-old insisted that he is fully committed to Arsenal for the foreseeable future.

He said: “I have three years to go with Arsenal and I always respect my contract.”

“I have known Al Kalifa and Al Jazeera [the TV station] for a long time and I advised them at some stage when they wanted to go into football, buying television rights and things like that.”

Wenger takes his side to the Stade Vélodrome to face L’OM for the first time since 1994 when he was manager of rivals Monaco hoping to maintain the Gunners can maintain their good form in Europe.
