London: Although he has not won a trophy in eight years, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger keeps enjoying the backing of the club's owner and thinks a prolonged stay could make him "immortal."

Wenger, the longest serving manager in the English Premier League after 17 years in charge, reiterated his desire to stay at the London club beyond next summer when his contract expires.

"Honestly, I would love to be here forever because that would mean I would be immortal," Wenger told a news conference on Friday ahead of Arsenal's trip to Swansea. "I'm not naive enough to believe that. What I would like to do as long as I am here is give my best for this club because I love this club."
