Wenger rubbishes Barcelona job rumors: My commitment is to Arsenal

The Gunners boss is yet to sign a new contract at Emirates Stadium but, after being linked with the Catalans, the Frenchman has distanced himself from the speculation
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has distanced himself from Spanish reports that he is in line to replace Tata Martino at Barcelona.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Catalonia as the current Camp Nou incumbent is under increasing pressure after the Blaugrana dropped to third in La Liga following two defeats in three games.

Wenger agreed terms over a new deal at Emirates Stadium back in October but because he has yet to officially sign the contract, Barcelona had been mooted as a potential destination.

However, Wenger has moved to quash reports that he is ready to leave his post in north London and head for Spain, telling reporters: "My commitment is here and nowhere else."

Ahead of Sunday's crunch north London derby meeting with Tottenham, Wenger believes that, despite recent criticism that culminated in Thursday's Europa League defeat to Benfica, Tim Sherwood's side hasn't had a bad season.

He added: "Tottenham is a difficult ground to go to for everybody, we have good memories and bad memories.

"I still think it takes time when you bring in many new players but you cannot say Spurs had a bad season."
