Despite series of fans’ protests calling for the exit of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Frenchman has agreed a new two-year contract, extending his 21-year reign at the club.

Wenger’s contract was set to finish at the end of the current campaign, but will now remain Arsenal manager until at least 2019.
