London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has quashed talks of quitting the club and said that he is now much more motivated to guide his team to glory than he used to be when he joined the Emirates Stadium. The Frenchman’s job came under severe pressure following Arsenal’s exit from the FA Cup after suffering a 1-2 defeat at the hands of Watford at home on Sunday. Wenger had received a flurry of criticism from Arsenal fans who are calling for him to leave the club this summer. But it seemed that the Gunners boss was in no mood to leave the club at the moment.

Wenger, who still has one year left on his contract, said that he had no doubt about his capabilities and highlighted that he had brought the club so far with his uphill struggle, the Mirror reported. Insisting that he was still dedicated towards his club, Wenger admitted that he now feels more pressure and responsibility to keep the team moving forward. Reflecting on his side’s recent performances, Wenger admitted that his side had gone through some really disappointing spell in recent times, but added that he and his entire team were still determined to bring trophies to their shelf.

Wenger further called on Arsenal to deliver something special, saying that they had to put themselves fully in order to turn the things around for themselves. With the FA Cup exit, Arsenal’s hopes of clinching silverware this season seem to be fading fast as they are 11 points behind leaders Leicester City at the top of the Premier League and are trailing 2-0 against Barcelona in the Champions League, with second leg to be played on Thursday.
