Arsenal bosss Arsene Wenger was proud of his players after their thrilling FA Cup final triumph over Chelsea.

Wenger became the most successful manager in the competition’s history.

Having stumbled home fifth and missed out on Champions League qualification, criticism of the Gunners boss has reached unprecedented and unpalatable levels.

Wenger has continued undeterred and, ahead of talks about his future next week, oversaw a record seventh FA Cup triumph on Saturday, with Aaron Ramsey securing a memorable 2-1 win moments after Chelsea‘s Diego Costa had cancelled out Alexis Sanchez‘s controversial strike.

“I am very proud because you see what fight you have to win one (FA Cup),” Wenger said on BBC One.

“I am proud if no-one has done it before, to win the championship without losing a game and win seven FA Cups.

On his future, Wenger added: “We have a board meeting on Tuesday, and on Wednesday or Thursday it will all be very clear.”

He continued: “I think we had an outstanding performance from the first minute onwards.

“This team has suffered, but it has united and responded.

“I said last week that this team would win the championship with one or two buys and keep them together.

“They are in a good way, they showed strength and unity and we played spectacular football.”
