Wenger: Don't panic, I am going nowhere

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has pledged his future to the Emirates Stadium outfit, insisting he is not set to take over at Real Madrid. The Frenchman had emerged as a target for Real presidential candidate Florentino Perez, the architect behind the Madridistas' galacticos era involving Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos and David Beckham.

And the Frenchman himself recently fuelled speculation over his future, after admitting the prospect of working at Real under Perez would be "strongly interesting."

However, he has now quashed rumours suggesting he is on his way out, insisting he he will be staying in North London until at least the end of his current contract, which expires in June 2011.

"There's nothing to worry about, it's not an issue for me," he said in the Daily Mail.

"I'm staying here. If that changes I will let you know, but don't worry about that. It's not an issue."
