This team suffered, but they responded, says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger

"For me, the contract does not have special meaning but, because of the debate, maybe I should have sorted that out earlier". "To get another FA Cup - delighted".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he remained in the dark about his future after steering his side to a magnificent 2-1 victory over Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

The Frenchman claimed the triumph was one of his proudest moments, alongside the 2003-04 Arsenal team that won the title without losing a single league game. He said, "I think the first goal was very odd. Hopefully, he'll be there next season".

Credit must go to the perseverance shown by Wenger's men, who for large parts of the game nullified the threat posed by Eden Hazard and Costa.

"Of course I want him to stay at club".

After finishing fifth in the EPL, Wenger and Arsenal missed out on Champions League football for the first time in 20 seasons. "But they should take a lot from what they've done this year".

"There's a board meeting Tuesday", Wenger said on the pitch before collecting the trophy.

And it might just be enough to stem the tide of protests against Wenger, as the record 13-time FA Cup victor is yet to announce a new contract for the 67-year-old Frenchman for next season.

"We had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards".

"This team has suffered, but they're united and they responded". The former Germany global had played just 37 minutes of football in over a year before his final appearance, but showed no signs of rust as he put in one of his best performances in an Arsenal shirt. But the decision by Anthony Taylor's assistant was overturned by the referee.

Ramsey was clearly offside during that passage of play, and he did appear to have impeded Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois' view.

The 26-year-old also scored the decisive goal in the 2014 final victory over Hull.

He said that when Chelsea equalised via Diego Costa, there was tension in the air but Aaron Ramsey's goal just three minutes later calmed his nerves.

By the time that Conte made his first change, bringing on Cesc Fabregas for Nemaja Matic, on 61 minutes, the game was fast drifting away from Chelsea.

But it is the losers who still head in the off-season the most buoyant.

"It has given a bit of momentum for the club and for the fans to go into next season full of hope and I hope we can have a better year next year".
