Wenger defiant

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has issued a defiant warning about his future following his side's 3-1 victory over Carling Cup over Shrewsbury on Tuesday.

The Frenchman has come under major criticism in recent times after his team extended their run of trophyless seasons to six and compounded this by struggling in the early part of this campaign, including an 8-2 defeat to rivals Manchester United.

Wenger was recently given the dreaded vote of confidence by the club's chief executive, Ivan GAzidis after Gunners shocking 4-3 defeat to Blackburn at the weekend and things looked bleak at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night after the away side took the lead but goals from Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Yossi Benayoun sealed the victory. Those following the free sports betting wouldn't have been surprised by the result.

Despite the win, questions understandably remain over Wenger's position but he insists he has no intention of leaving the club.

Wenger is renowned for his stubbornness but insists he is taking his club down the right path and has rejected calls to bring in a defensive coach such as Martin Keown.

"I have just completed 30 years of coaching. I don't want to answer this kind of question. I am completely focused on doing well," he said.

"I can understand that people are unhappy and criticise, but you know as well as I know people are very quick to go overboard."

However, those looking at the mobile sports betting will know that Arsenal already look to be out of the title race and could face a struggle to qualify for the Champions League unless they are able to turn things around soon.
