Wenger joined the club on 1 October 1996 and is now the longest-serving manager in the English football league.

Arsenal revealed Wenger had conducted a full review of the club's activities on and off the field along with chief executive Ivan Gazidis.

"The ambition is to put this club in a position where we are winning the Premier League, where we are competing to win in Europe and pushing forward". "We went down that road with [Cesc] Fabregas and [Gael] Clichy and [Samir] Nasri - great players who left because they got more money at other clubs".

"We're committed to mounting a sustained league challenge and that will be our focus this summer and next season", he added.

The contract was agreed on Monday between Wenger and majority shareholder Stan Kroenke, before being ratified by the club's board on Tuesday.

"I just don't want him to go on too long and for it to crumble and end in tears, and all of us don't like Arsene". "I think I have shown you that I have exactly the same commitment".

The Gunners were fifth in the Premier League this season, the first time they have finished outside the top four since the Frenchman joined in 1996.

But after leading Arsenal to an impressive 2-1 FA Cup final victory over Premier League champions Chelsea with Kroenke watching from the stands on Saturday, Wenger had hinted he was willing to stay.

"Arsene is the best person to help us make that happen".

Television presenter and Arsenal fan Piers Morgan vented his frustration at the news of Wenger's new deal.

The next two-plus years likely will shape Wenger's full legacy as Arsenal's manager.

"I think he enjoys having a handle over most aspects of the club".

The day has finally come where Arsenal supporters are expected to get a clearer picture over the future of manager Arsene Wenger.

Wenger has implied that he would like to stay at the Emirates and said after the defeat of Chelsea: "You can't have 35 years at the top level if you're not the right man to do the job". I'm with Arsene Wenger.

Ferguson was in charge at Manchester United for more than 25 years before he called time on his glittering career at Old Trafford back in 2013.

He said: "There is no complacency anywhere at this club".
