Wenger urged to extend contract
Arsene Wenger should stay at Arsenal for years to come after silencing his "mindless" critics, according to chairman Peter Hill-Wood.
Wenger faced serious calls to quit from his own supporters earlier in the season when it appeared as though a seventh potless season would also end without Champions League qualification.
But nine wins in 10 Premier League games have set the Gunners on course for third place, and Peter Hill-Wood wants the Frenchman to extend a contract which has two years to run.
He told the Sunday Mirror: "I can't think of anybody better to run the team, and he has shown how much rubbish people were talking earlier in the season.
"We had a terrible run of injuries and that obviously had an effect, but a few mindless people were saying that Arsene was past his sell-by date. he has shown that is nonsense.
"He is building a young team with a great future and I'm sure he would love to see them develop. I would want him to stay as long as he is happy and I see no reason at all why he would want to go."
