Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is pleased to have signed a new long-term deal.

With the FA Cup success behind him, Wenger penned another contract extension at the club, with the new three-year deal taking him up until 2017.

Negotiations over the deal were lengthy and, although Wenger is adamant he always wanted to sign, he would not be drawn on whether victory in the cup final played a part in his decision.

"I don't want to answer that question," he replied when asked if there would have been doubt over his future without the trophy win.

"Was it always going to happen? Certainly. I always said the same thing, I want to think that I have done well for the club. My motivation was never at stake, I always wanted to stay.

"But as well I wanted to feel that I had done a good job. The fact that we could not win was going on my mind and it was important for me to feel like I was doing a decent job.

"I never look behind me at what is done. I look in front of me. I'm always turned forward. We have won the cup but we want to win more and we want to come back and fight for more, what is done is done."
