Arsenal boss Wenger: Players must put trophies ahead of contracts

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is demanding his players put winning trophies ahead of fatter contracts this summer.

"We were close this year, but we did not win and what I expect from my team is that, if you are a winner, you say 'let's come back next year and win'," the Arsenal manager said.

"If our players are not capable of doing that and just want to walk out for bigger contracts, for me that would be the biggest disappointment.

"If you are a winner you say 'you beat me now in a game but give me a chance to come back and beat you'. That's what I expect of a team.

"If they cannot do that then it means I was wrong completely in my whole judgement of this team.

"That would be the biggest disappointment for the club - not only to not win this year but to not be capable of coming back together."
