Usmanov eager for Arsenal to secure Wenger to new deal

Uzbek billionaire Alisher Usmanov is eager to see Arsene Wenger pen a new Arsenal deal.

Usmanov is Arsenal's second largest shareholder.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Usmanov said: "I never said anything bad about the club or somebody personally. I said what, in my view, we can do - not better - but more effectively. I continue to keep this right for me.

"If I am [a] fan, if I am [a] shareholder and my team is in position number one, of course I am very happy. I hope this result keeps on until the end of the season. I wish this [for] my club.

"The club and team demonstrate Arsene Wenger's capacity to be number one. This is Wenger's responsibility and his vision.

"He does not every time have the possibility to solve this. Now I think he has this possibility and we support every effort to make our club [the] best."
