Martin Keown is confident that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will see out the remainder of his contract.
The former Arsenal and England centre-back can’t imagine a scenario in which the Frenchman, 65, would leaves the club.
‘He’s the manager for the next two seasons, and I fully expect him to see it through,’ Keown, 49, wrote in the Daily Mail.
‘He’ll obviously have to assess his position after next season, but when I spoke to him I didn’t detect any waning in his determination.
‘I imagine he’d be shocked and surprised by what happened on Tuesday night as he believes wholeheartedly in his players.
‘Maybe he was guilty of overestimating how good some of his players are, but you can be sure he won’t change his philosophy after a couple of bad games.’
