Olivier Giroud: Arsenal players all want Arsene Wenger to return as manager

Conte praises Costa's 'great discipline'

Wenger, who has managed the Gunners for the last 21 years, said last week he has made up his mind on his future plans, with an announcement to come "very soon".

Sutton said also Wenger wants to "surround himself with "yes" men", and that has been his downfall. West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis also said Wenger told him he meant to stay on after Arsenal's 1-3 defeat at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

Arsenal's current malaise is statistically the worst since Wenger arrived in 1996 and has led to widespread questioning of the players' conviction in their manager's approach. I'm surprised Steve Bould [Wenger's assistant] doesn't get hold of him and say this is the reality.

Arsenal are out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for the seventh year in a row and were dumped out in the most humiliating way possible, 10-2 on aggregate against Bayern.

BBC pundit and former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has slammed Arsene Wenger's current tenure as Arsenal manager as a "dictatorship". They have just accepted mediocrity. Leicester City - Leicester City - beat us in the Premier League when it was supposed to be our season.

"Do the right thing and if you're not going to do the right thing then tell us".

But Giroud told French television channel Infosport+: "We want to see Arsene Wenger continue, to continue the adventure, because we support him".

Although Dortmund are third in the Bundesliga and are not guaranteed European football next season, they have progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals, where they will meet Monaco.
