Arsene Wenger: 'I know what I will do in my future and will let you know soon'

Arsene Wenger has said he will announce his plans "very soon'' after reaching a decision about his future as Arsenal manager.

Wenger would not confirm what that decision was but the Frenchman is under increasing pressure with Arsenal's season on the brink of collapse after six defeats in the last nine matches in all competitions.

The Gunners lost again on Saturday, a 3-1 defeat at West Brom leaving them in fifth place in the Premier League and five points adrift of the Champions League qualification spots.

It led to Wenger being asked questions again regarding his future -- with his contract set to expire at the end of the season -- and he replied: "I know what I will do in my future and will let you know soon.

"I don't think today I will necessarily worry about [telling you]. We are in a unique bad patch that we haven't had in 20 years. We've lost game after game and that is much more important than my future."

Asked if he had let anyone else know the decision, including the club, he said: "No."

And on whether he had seen the plane banners during the game, he replied: "I watch the game, I do not watch the stands during the game. I believe that you have to live with that. You focus on your job, no matter what people think."

Wenger then touched on whether the atmosphere from disgruntled fans has been affecting his team during a game.

"I don't know. In our job it's like when you have a problem with your engine -- you can always find many problems, but it's important to find the most important one," he said.

"I think the most important one today was that we had 77 per cent of possession and didn't create many chances. We have to focus on that. Fans are a bit disappointed, which I can completely understand. [But that doesn't] explain why we have not created goal chances."
