Arsenal's Chairman Has Released A Statement On Arsene Wenger's Future

Sir Chips Keswick has his say

Last week, Arsene Wenger admitted that fan protests would heavily impact whether or not he'll stay on in the job - and now Arsenal's chairman Sir Chips Keswick has released a statement on the Frenchman's future.

Arsenal are in a bit of a state at the moment. A run of five losses in seven games - including two demolitions at the hand of Bayern Munich - points to a team in disarray. Star man Alexis Sanchez seems at odds with the club and his teammates, and looks certain to leave in the summer.

Not only that, but now rumours about that Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are set to reject contract offers and seek moves too.

In a statement that was published to the club's website, he said: "We are fully aware of the attention currently focused on the club and understand the debate. We respect that fans are entitled to their different individual opinions but we will always run this great football club with its best long-term interests at heart.

"Arsène has a contract until the end of the season. Any decisions will be made by us mutually and communicated at the right time in the right way."
