Hill-Wood wants Wenger to extend deal

Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood wants manager Arsene Wenger to extend his current deal at the club and silence the 'mindless' critics who think he should quit.

Wenger is contracted to the Gunners until 2014 and has overcome some of the sternest criticism of his 15-year tenure at the North London club after a horror start to their Premier League campaign.

With Arsenal in third place and looking like sealing Champions League football again, Hill-Wood is keen to show the board's unwavering support in their French boss.

"For him to stay longer than that (2014) would be perfect. I can't think of anybody better to run the team," Hill-Wood said in the Sunday Mirror. "And he has shown how much rubbish people were talking earlier this season. We had a terrible run of injuries and that obviously had an effect.

"But a few mindless people were saying that he had to go, that Arsene was past his sell-by date. He has shown that is nonsense."

Hill-Wood added: "He has a young squad, with some excellent young players. He is building a young team with a great future and I am sure he would love to see them develop.

"I would want him to stay as long as he is happy here. He has been with us 14 years and has done a magnificent job. I want him to stay for the long-term and I see no reason at all why he should want to go."
