Wenger: FA Cup has no influence over contract negotiations
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Saturday's FA Cup final against Hull City will have no impact on his future. Since lifting the FA Cup with a penalty shoot-out victory over Manchester United in 2005, the Gunners have lost in the 2006 Champions League final to Barcelona and League Cup finals against Chelsea in 2007 and Birmingham City in 2011.
The lack of silverware has led to criticism of Wenger and raised doubts over his future, though club chief executive Ivan Gazidis said in January a contract extension would be announced "at the right time".
Asked what bearing the Wembley final will have on his future, Wenger replied "none", insisting there had been "no change" to his contract situation.
