Arsenal Says Wenger To Sign New Deal

Arsene Wenger

LONDON (AP) — Arsene Wenger will manage Arsenal for a 19th season after the club said Monday that he will be signing a new contract.

The Frenchman, who has been in charge since 1996, had been reluctant to publicly commit to a new deal, but chief executive Ivan Gazidis said that will happen soon.

Wenger has three Premier League titles and four FA Cups championships with Arsenal but hasn’t won a trophy since 2005. Arsenal leads this season’s Premier League and remains in contention in the Champions League and FA Cup.
