Football: Wenger at the crossroads

ENGLAND (REUTERS) - Arsene Wenger said he will decide whether to extend his 20-year spell at Arsenal in March or April but that whatever he decides, he will be managing a team next season.

The pressure on Wenger is mounting as Arsenal look certain to exit the Champions League at the first knockout stage for the seventh season in a row after the 5-1 demolition by Bayern Munich in their last-16 first leg game on Wednesday.

When asked if his future at the club will be decided before end of the season Wenger told reporters: "Yes, I will decide (my) future in March or April, but I don't know when.

"I speak to the board but I don't want to speak about how they view my future. What's important is the club, not my future. No matter what happens, I will manage next season. Whether it is here or not, that is for sure."
