Football: Wenger still committed to Arsenal, says chief executive Gazidis

LONDON (AFP) - Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis said on Thursday that he believes manager Arsene Wenger is committed to the club for "the long term", despite media reports linking him with a switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Wenger, 63, will embark upon the last season of his current contract in August and, with Arsenal's trophy drought now stretching to eight years, there has been speculation he could be tempted to leave north London for pastures new.

However, with Arsenal having booked a Champions League berth for a 16th consecutive season, Gazidis believes Wenger remains the right man to take the club forward.
