Will Wenger start the new season with a clean slate from fans?

It salvaged some pride for the beleaguered Wenger who has been on the brink of getting the boot after failing to secure a Champions League spot.

"I've always been very clear on that", he said, when asked whether he would still be at the helm in August.

"For the trust from my team-mates and my manager because being sidelined for such a long time, I suffered a lot this season because you want to contribute on the pitch".

The Frenchman's future has been debated for months, with his contract expiring at the end of the campaign.

Per Mertesacker has highlighted the faith shown in him by Arsene Wenger, as the Arsenal captain started his first game of 2016/17 in the FA Cup final.

Courtois said Sanchez's goal in the fourth minute of the FA Cup final at the Wembley Stadium here on Saturday evening. For this reason, the best way for me is to take two or three days with my family and to stay with them and then to try to prepare for a new season. Until the last second of the season, we finished the job. I have nothing against Antonio, he has done a fantastic job. "I invite you to live with me one day and one thing you can not question is my commitment". "I don't know but for sure you must think that there is a lot of tension in those moments and sometimes you could be exhausted".

He said that it is not for him to decide the right man to lead the club but he did accept that he was still the man for the Gunners.

Battered by criticism from furious Arsenal fans who have called for his resignation throughout a troubled season, Wenger was finally able to celebrate as he won the FA Cup for a record seventh time. I feel this club has special values and we have shown that. "We started to play better in the second half and the red card was decisive", he said. "It's for me afterwards to decide, if they want me, whether it's yes or no".

And, as you can imagine, it didn't go down too well with many Arsenal fans...
