Wenger's commitment to Arsenal's cause remains unquestionable after he signed a contract extension worth £4.5million a year that will keep him at the club until 2011.
"I'm at a stage of my career now where I don't want to be associated with anyone else," said Wenger.
"It's like a marriage. I met this club at the right moment of my life and although I had difficult times at the start, the club was always behind me.
"The first time I realised the level of support for the club was when we were at Wembley in the Champions League in the Nineties and it was a sell-out.
"I realised then that the club was bigger than Highbury."
