Wenger says contract doubts contributed to top-4 failure

Wenger says contract doubts contributed to top-4 failure

Wenger has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996, and has won three Premier Leagues and six FA Cups with them.

Leicester City failed to secure the win they needed at home to Bournemouth for a place in the top half of the table, the 1-1 draw ending their poor defence of the title in 12th position.

"That's a hard one", he said on LFC TV.

Tottenham ended the season in second place, with City third and Liverpool fourth.

Olivier Giroud insists he is content at Arsenal and appears set to stay at the club beyond the summer despite being mentioned in connection with a possible return to his native France.

However Dunphy believes that replacing Wenger would not solve Arsenal's problems and instead points to a lack of muscle in the transfer market in recent years, which has led to some mediocre signings.

Nobody can argue the success Wenger has had at Arsenal.

Liverpool have qualified for the Champions League only twice in eight seasons and their manager said the club's status demands that it becomes a regular occurrence. For me, it's the best competition and Liverpool needs to be there consistently, all the time, and I love the perspective.

Game 3 Preview: Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs
Stephen Curry once again led Golden State with 29 points, Kevin Durant had 16 while Draymond Green chipped in with 13. It was a drastic difference from a game of catch-up two days earlier when the Warriors rallied from 25 points down.

"We are prepared, we will see what works out or not", Klopp added. He opens the game up and says: "You have a shot, we have a shot, best team wins".

After Sunday's win, the Brazilian hinted that he will stay in England next season, telling ESPN Brazil: "I have a long contract with LFC".

"Last year we were more Jekyll and Hyde - we could be brilliant one week and awful the next".

"But the psychological environment for the group of players was absolutely horrendous".

"One thing you can not question is my love for this club".

Sure, a decent Europa League run next season might hide the cracks, but Arsenal can't hide from the fact they have underachieved this season.

There was a time when Liverpool fans wanted Lallana replaced by ambitious targets, but he's one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp's team-sheet nowadays.

The 30-year-old netted 24 goals across all competitions last season, and in January joined compatriots Laurent Koscielny and Francis Coquelin in putting pen to paper on a new long-term contract.
