Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted he will not emulate Sir Alex Ferguson's 27-year reign in charge of Manchester United. The 66-year-old Frenchman joined the Gunners in September, 1996, but has revealed he will not match Sir Alex's mark.

Wenger has come under severe pressure in recent weeks, with a large number of Arsenal supporters calling for his sacking following their disappointing Premier League performances during the current season. The manager is out of contract at the end of the next campaign, and has previously said he would like to stay in the shorter term if he was to be offered another extension.

"I give my best for this club. You don't spend 19 years at a club - like Sir Alex Ferguson spent 27 (years) - without every minute of your time, you give your whole life for that and try to do as well as possible," the Arsenal manager said, according to Sky Sports.

"One target is to keep 100 per cent of people happy. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to do that this season." Asked if he thinks he could match the length of Sir Alex's tenure, the Arsenal boss said: "No, no, never. Don't worry."

Meanwhile, Wenger also insisted he does not worry about the conjecture surrounding his position. "I am not in a democracy. I am in the next game, perform, try to do as well as you can and accept people's opinions. That is what it is about," he said of the current situation at Arsenal.
