Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick has praised Arsene Wenger for winning the FA Cup and believes that the Frenchman will bring more success to the club in the near future.

Arsenal beat Hull City 3-2 in extra time to win the FA Cup on Saturday, their first trophy after nine barren years.

Keswick has praised Wenger’s longevity at the club and feels that the Frenchman deserves the long overdue success that he finally achieved on Saturday.

“Anybody who does a job like that, for as long as he has, deserves every success that comes his way”, Keswick told the club’s official site. “He did it and I have never seen a man more delighted.”


Wenger has agreed to sign a new contract with the Gunners with his existing contract expiring this summer.

Keswick is hoping that the cup success will finally unshackle the team and the Frenchman will bring more success to the club in the future.

“I hope he will continue and there will be successes to come in the very near future.

"We’ve added one trophy, and we want more.”

Wenger has won the FA Cup five times that makes him joint-second with Sir Alex Ferguson and Thomas Mitchell in the all time list of FA Cup winning managers. George Ramsay won the trophy six times with Aston Villa in the late 19th century and the early 20th century.
