Despite series of fans’ protests calling for the exit of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Frenchman has agreed a new two-year contract, extending his 21-year reign at the club.
Wenger’s contract was set to finish at the end of the current campaign, but will now remain Arsenal manager until at least 2019.
This is coming few days after the Gunners won the English FA Cup after beating Chelsea 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.
On Monday, Wenger and club owner Stan Kroenke met to determine the Frenchman’s future, and their decision was relayed to club directors at a Tuesday board meeting.
As it stands, Arsenal are planning to make an official announcement on Wednesday.
The Gunners finished fifth in the Premier League this season, the first time they have finished outside the top four hence missing the UEFA Champions League in 20 years.
