Wenger: Arsenal will only be judged on winning title

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has spelt out the club's intentions to end their trophy drought this summer.

Wenger has set his sights firmly on delivering a first championship since his 'Invincibles' side swept all before them in 2004.

"What will be success is to improve from last year, which is to win the league - that is the only benchmark," the Gunners boss declared.

"You cannot finish third and then say for the season after, you want to finish behind that.

"We are a young side and the improvement is natural - the ambition is there, we are hungry for success.

"We know people want more from us and we are ready to give more, but success is to win the league."

Wenger may be preparing for his 14th campaign at the helm, but the former Monaco boss maintains the desire for success burns as strong as ever.

"I love to win and I love football - I can combine the two and that is what keeps me hungry," he said.

"It has nothing to do with the number of years you are in the job, it is just your nature - if I play any game with you, I will want to win it. If I lose I am sad."
