We played against all the hard opponents, so we finished the season in a very strong way with a very strong dynamic.

But it was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon that he will remain in his role until at least 2019.

"I said two weeks ago he was going to stay and I wasn't wrong", Henry told Sky Sports.

Arsenal said the Frenchman and Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis had conducted a full review of the club's on and off field activities "to identify areas for improvement to build a sustained title challenge".

Following the successful two-year extension of Arsene Wenger's contract at Arsenal, the club's minority shareholder Alisher Usmanov has told the board to give enough support to the Frenchman to deliver.

Yet now Wenger has committed his future to the Gunners for at least two more seasons, could that affect clubs looking at signing their players and more specifically, Liverpool's pursuit of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain?

"Our ambition is to win the Premier League and other major trophies in Europe".

While some question whether Wenger was handed a new deal out of misty-eyed loyalty, Gazidis insists that is not the case.

This announcement comes on the heels of a strong end to the season, with a five-match winning streak and a victory in the FA Cup Final giving the club good reason to bring the divisive manager back.

The Gunners won the FA Cup after beating Chelsea 2-1 on Saturday and Wenger's new contract was ratified by the club's board this week. It's what the fans, players, staff, manager and board expect'.

Sanchez and team-mate Mesut Ozil are both holding out for weekly wages of around £300,000-per-week and have just one year left on their current deals.

Arsenal has bowed out in the Round of 16 the past seven seasons of the UCL, losing to Bayern and Barcelona a combined five times.

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, who is now out with an ankle injury and expected to miss the start of next season, said Wenger had worked "miracles" at the club. "Hopefully a change in system might be the thing that helps them win the title next year".

"As an Arsenal fan, and as a guy who had Arsene as a coach and have maximum respect for him, I'm happy to see him at the club".
