Arsene Wenger on new contracts, goalkeepers and staying positive


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says midfielders Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta will sort their contract extension at the end of next month.

The two are expected to extend their stay at the Emirates together with striker Theo Walcott as the Frenchman confirmed that he will meet with his players after the end of this season.

"That will all be sorted at the end of May," Wenger said on Friday.

Asked about the situation in goal, he added: "I believe in the goalkeepers I have.

"I believe that [Wojciech] Szczesny is a very good goalkeeper and [David] Ospina has come in and done a fantastic job. You look at the numbers in the Premier League and you look at who is top of all the goalkeepers and you will see it’s Ospina."

The Frenchman also believes the Gunners should be satisfied with what they achieved in this season's Premier League campaign.

"I look at it in a positive way because what you want from a team is to show during the season that you can grow together and become better," he said.

"We faced a big challenge because Chelsea didn't drop their level in the title race, and they were more consistent from the start until the end, and that's why we didn't catch them up.

"Overall we feel we have made progress."
