Adventurous Giroud wants Wenger renewal

Speaking after the game, Wenger said he had made up his mind about his future and would make his intentions public "very soon".

Sutton said also Wenger wants to "surround himself with "yes" men", and that has been his downfall.

Some supporters have been calling for the 67-year-old's departure on more than one occasion in recent months following yet another disappointing season, but West Brom manager Tony Pulis claimed this week Wenger intends to stay put.

Sutton said on BBC Radio 5 live: "The last 13 years have been a disaster and the two FA Cups have papered over the cracks".

Sutton says Arsenal have accepted mediocrity, and urged Wenger to leave his post.

It's left Arsenal needing a huge improvement after the worldwide break if they are to avoid missing out on Champions League football for the first-time on Wenger but, despite the clear issues and fan frustration, Wenger is set to remain in North London.

"I watch the game, I do not watch the stands", said Wenger.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud hopes Arsene Wenger will stay at the Emirates Stadium beyond the 2016-17 campaign.

"His work in the transfer market has been a failure lately". The Gunners now sit in sixth place on 50 points, two spots below Champions League qualification with nine matches left in the season.

Although Dortmund are third in the Bundesliga and are not guaranteed European football next season, they have progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals, where they will meet Monaco.

"Let's stop this other myth of "be careful what you wish for" and 'what are we going to get?' and 'how do we beat a guy with this record?'"

"We want Arsene Wenger to renew his contract, to continue his adventure, because we support him".
