Arsene Wenger Signs Contract Extension At Arsenal to Stay Until 2017

arsene wenger Arsene Wenger Signs Contract Extension At Arsenal to Stay Until 2017

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has agreed to sign an extension to his contract, which will keep the French manager at the Emirates Stadium until 2017.

Wenger is the longest serving current manager in the Premier League, having joined the club in 1996.

Today’s news regarding his extension will be a relief for many Arsenal supporters. Wenger won the 2014 FA Cup, and will hopefully use that piece of silverware as an opportunity to build a new legacy at Arsenal.

The contract extension is expected to be officially announced in the next few days, possibly as soon as tomorrow according to BBC Sport.
