Arsenal beat Chelsea to win record 13th FA Cup

"I think it was a handball even if it was maybe not deliberate".

Arsene Wenger is out of contract at Arsenal, but believes he is still the right man for the job as the board prepares for the big decision on Tuesday.

Ramsey said: "Of course, I want him to stay at club".

The businessman has privately reiterated his support for Wenger and his commitment to providing him with the resources he needs to win the Premier League title. "No one is to blame, it is one of those things". You can not get tougher.

He said, "People talk too much, people talk about China but there's a World Cup coming up and if I go to China I won't have the chance of going to it".

"Hopefully one day I'll be back here as a manager, that's kind of the ambition".

After what has been our most enduring league campaign, has somehow become respectable with our cup triumph, and now the manager is using that display as proof that he is still the correct person to lead this club into next season.

The 2-1 victory over London rivals and newly crowned English Premier League champions Chelsea came courtesy of Alexis Sanchez's controversial opener on four minutes, with Aaron Ramsey then heading Arsenal back in front three minutes after Diego Costa's 76th-minute deflected equaliser.

After a torrid run of form at the start of spring, Wenger opted to alter his tactics and set his side out with a three-man defence. They all finished third or higher in their respected leagues, and they may not want to come to a club where the owners are not willing to invest their own money.

Indeed, an injury to Gabriel, red card for Laurent Koscielny and illness for Shkodran Mustafi created his opportunity, which he took at Wembley.

Despite concerns over his fitness, having only featured for 37 minutes over the course of the entire campaign, the German World Cup victor was a man-of-the-match contender.

He added: "The cup is hugely popular in every single country".

"There is a lot of tension in these moments and sometimes you could be exhausted".

"I've got options but nothing sorted or in stone or anything like that".

"I think we have shown great support in him (Wenger) as well and for his trust in us".
