Arsene Wenger insists that Saturday's FA Cup final is about much more than him and his future, and revolves instead around Arsenal's drive to beat Premier League champions Chelsea and end a troubled season on a high note.
The 67-year-old Frenchman has constantly refused to give a definitive answer on whether his current contract, which expires at the end of the season, is to be renewed.
It is the issue that has divided Arsenal supporters for months, with many vociferously calling for him to end his 21-year stint.
Wenger has also admitted the uncertainty contributed to the club's first finish outside the top four in two decades. Once again he declined to clarify his personal position yesterday, but did make it clear that if his weekend date at Wembley did turn out to be a farewell it would be from Arsenal, not the game itself.
"This will not be my last match anyway because I will stay, no matter what happens, in football," he said. "Will this be my last match at Arsenal? I don't know. What I want is to win the next game. I love to win and what I want is do well for my club. That's all I care about, it's not all about me," he added.
