Those expecting Arsene Wenger to throw in the towel can chose to decamp or accept reality - he is going no where!

Wenger has categorically stated that the January turmoil has merely strengthened his resolve to remain as Arsenal manager.

The Gunners haven't won a match in 2018 and are set to lose their best player, Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United in the next 48 hours.

With the loud voices calling for the legendary manager to walk away, the Frenchman instead says he wants to stay on to ‘steady’ the ship .

When asked if this could be his final season following a campaign of adversity, Wenger responded: 'No, that's not the way I respond.

"I agree completely that 2018 until now has not been very positive but I am long enough in the job to know that what is important is how we respond to it and to focus on the performance.

"My personal situation is a bit secondary to all of that, what is important is how the team responds and what we make of 2018.

"We have many challenges, it is difficult at the moment, but as well very exciting because we have many challenges in front of us and we can come back in the Champions League.

"We of course play the semi-final (of the Carabao Cup) next week and after we have the Europa League as well, which is another target, so we have to very quickly get over this transfer period because for us especially this period has been more disturbing than ever.

Asked whether this has been the most stressful period of his career at Arsenal, the Frenchman added: 'I don't know, I have no stress measurement at all".
