Arsène Wenger today again ruled out leaving Arsenal before the end of his contract - and hinted for the first time he would like to stay on past 2014.
The Gunners boss, 63, still has another season left to run on his current deal, but has been linked with a summer switch to big-spending Paris St Germain.
Wenger, though, stressed his only focus was on securing Arsenal a top-four finish in the Barclays Premier League again and then planning to further strengthen the squad in the transfer window, with the best part of a £100million warchest at his disposal.
Speaking at this morning's media conference ahead of the trip to relegated QPR, Wenger said: "I answered that question already. I respect my contracts.
"I want to stay (on past 2014) if I do well and if I consider or the club considers that I do well, that is all.
The only way is up: Wenger wants to stay with Arsenal beyond 2014
"I want this club to do well, that is my basic feeling.
"We have gone through a period that was very sensitive, we are coming out of it now, in a much stronger position financially.
"I believe the club is in a very strong position for the future."
Wenger has transformed Arsenal since he arrived at Highbury in October 1996, making them the dominant force in the domestic game before overseeing the club's move to the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium and consistently delivering Champions League football in the face of heavy spending from their rivals.
The French coach is in no doubt when he does eventually call it a day, Arsenal will be in good shape for the future.
"I believe a big club should be run where everybody does his job and I try to do my job. The only thing I can say is that I do it with a lot of commitment and a lot of loyalty. I try to do as well as a I can for this club," he said.
"I believe that this club is today in a very, very strong position and has gone through a very sensitive period in a very intelligent way. After that, everything is here to have a great future.
"We have a good fanbase, we have now a strong financial situation, we have good young players and a squad with a bright future with the quality of the young players we have. It is just to manage it well now."
