Wenger won't let Arsenal players go easily

12:26 pm on 30 April 2011

English football manager Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal's collapse this season won't lead to a mass exodus of star players.

Wenger's side squandered a glorious chance to end their wait for a first trophy since 2005 as they lost the League Cup final against Birmingham, then crashed out of the Champions League to Barcelona and the FA Cup against Manchester United.

Arsenal has also failed to take their opportunities in the Premier League title race.

With Arsenal still looking weak in several departments, it would be no surprise if Cesc Fabregas, Robin Van Persie, and Samir Nasri considered their futures in the close season.

But Wenger is adamant that no one will be sold unless he feels the deal is right for the club.

He says his players have contracts and they will stay unless the club decides otherwise.
