"The behaviour of some people during this season is that what hurts me most".

In an interview broadcast before the FA Cup final, Wenger said: "You don't mind criticism, because we are in a public job".

After wavering about his future for months, Antonio Conte has finally said that he plans to stay and honor the remaining two years of his contract with Premier League champion Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger will be the FA Cup's most successful manager if Arsenal beat Chelsea at Wembley this afternoon but he will still not hold on to his medal.

But he still has yet to win a cup in an impressive coaching career after Chelsea lost to Arsenal 2-1 in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Nemanja Matic also starts in central midfield ahead of Cesc Fabregas, who scored against his former club when the two teams met in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge in February. "I don't believe that kind of behaviour reflects what Arsenal is or the values that Arsenal carries".

"There's a board meeting on Tuesday", Wenger said on the pitch before collecting the trophy.

Well, in some ways it could be a good decision for Arsenal to keep Wenger but he simply has to get things rights next season otherwise the fans will get on his back from the very start of the campaign.

Diego Costa equalised for Chelsea late in the second half, after Chelsea had lost Victor Moses to a second yellow card for diving, but Wenger's men had the ideal response as Aaron Ramsey bagged the winner three minutes later.

The Frenchman saw his team fail to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in almost two decades on Sunday as victories for Manchester City and Liverpool meant they held onto third and fourth places in the league respectively.

"So it was then for me a better situation to relax a little bit more.

But for sure, Arsene Wenger is a great manager for me".

The 2017 FA Cup final from Wembley is closing in. He doesn't want to let go of Arsenal Football Club.
