Arsene Wenger managed to once again put behind them negative criticism and put Arsenal on the path towards title success. The club won the FA Cup for the second consecutive season and this time around they managed to beat Aston Villa. A 4-0 victory in the final was extremely well-deserved for the gunners, who controlled the encounter from start to finish. This victory has made Arsenal as the most successful club in the FA Cup history with 12 titles to their name. More importantly, expectations will now increase for the upcoming Premier League season and manager Wenger says that he retains the hunger for a league title.
The ambition from Arsenal has been questioned on several occasions in recent years since they have been failing to mount a title challenge for almost a decade. The club last won the title back in the 2003-04 season. Amidst rumours about an impending exit for Wenger, the Frenchman stated that he has two years left on his contract and intends to reclaim the league title before it ends. This could be the last contract for the former Monaco manager, who will be edging towards 70 by the time this current contract runs out.
“I have two more years left on my contract.I will just sit down with my directors and see how much they believe and trust in me. My hunger is great but I want to do well.It’s a continuation of how we’ve played recently. Overall we have shown again that we’re a real team, we’ve made progress.We can deal with pressure. I would like to congratulate everybody: my staff, the players and the fans, who were great again today. After an indifferent start, the season has finished well so we are very happy,” said the Frenchman after the FA Cup success.
