Arsene Wenger has said that keeping his job as Arsenal boss is his “last worry” after losing six of their 12 games in 2018.
The Gunners host leaders Manchester City in the Premier League today, four days after a 3-0 defeat by City in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley. Arsenal is 27 points behind City and 10 adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham in the race for a Champions League place.
Wenger, Arsenal manager since 1996, said he is “amazed I still have to answer these kinds of questions”.
The 68-year-old Frenchman signed a new two-year contract in May 2017 after leading Arsenal to a third FA Cup triumph in four seasons, although they missed out on Champions League qualification for the first time in 20 years.
“I’ve turned the whole world down to respect my contracts,” he added.
“My position is the last worry I have at the moment. My worry is to get the team focused and ready for Thursday’s game.”
