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

But the club will announce after a board meeting that the Frenchman has signed a new contract until he is approaching his 70th birthday.

Ian Wright has praised Arsene Wenger for starting David Ospina and Per Mertesacker in Arsenal's 2-1 win against Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final. "And on Wednesday or Thursday it will be clearer", he said after his side's win.

"Honestly I think the goal after three minutes, in this way, I think this goal [should have been] disallowed". "We know this team has suffered". They'ven united and responded. I said last week this team will be in the championship with one or two good buys.

"We reached a fantastic target, an incredible target, with players that performed at 120 percent, every single one of them", Conte added.

Arsenal's victory shattered Conte's hopes of winning a Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season in England, and the Italian stressed the need for Chelsea to invest significantly this summer in order to maintain the standard of a campaign in which he believes they were "very lucky" with injuries.

Conte admitted during his post-match interview shortly after the game that the sending off of Victor Moses during the game was decisive.

Moses was dismissed for a second booking in the 2-1 defeat by Arsenal after going down in the box on 68 minutes - a move deemed to be simulation by referee Anthony Taylor. "I'm here for whatever the team needs and I have shown that during the season".

The 32-year-old had played only 37 minutes all season after coming off the bench in last weekend's win against Everton. "This season we were champions and we want to start next season like champions".

"The first goal should never have been allowed - it was clearly a handball and then Ramsey was offside because he was interfering in play", the goalkeeper was quoted as saying by Chelsea's official website on Sunday. "They surprised us a bit, but our first 25 minutes weren't good".

"At our best moment, the referee chose to give the red card".

"There is disappointment for the final result but it can happen and there was a lot of pressure".

The Wenger debate has divided the club's supporters this season, creating what Wenger describes as a "hostile" environment which has effected his players.

Owner Stan Kroenke told The Associated Press earlier in the season he remained "very high on Arsene".
