BY SAMSON MBII,15TH MAY 2017-Arsene Wenger has hailed his players’ character following supporters’ criticism of his side
Arsene Wenger has insisted a failure to qualify for the Champions League will not affect his future or Arsenal’s summer transfer plans.
The Gunners are facing the prospect of missing out on a place in Europe’s elite competition for the first time since 1998, with Manchester City and Liverpool the favourites to secure the final two Champions League places.
Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over West Ham on Super Sunday ensured Arsenal would go into their final two matches with their fate not in their own hands in the race for a top four finish.
But Wenger, who is yet to confirm whether he will remain at the club next season, said: “I believe finishing outside the top four will not have any influence on how the club will be led and how we will operate on the transfer market.
