Wenger 'still driven to succeed'

Arsene Wenger is still hungry to succeed at Arsenal as he prepares to take charge of his 1,000th Gunners game, according to former chairman Peter Hill-Wood.

Arsenal are without a trophy since 2005 but are firmly in the chase for the Barclays Premier League title and the FA Cup this season.

Hill-Wood, who stepped down after 31 years as chairman last June following a heart attack, believes Wenger can lead the team into a new era.

He told the Daily Telegraph: "He doesn't think his job is finished yet. I don't think his enthusiasm has diminished at all.

"I don't see him suddenly deserting and starting again at some other club."

The Frenchman's contract expires at the end of the season but Hill-Wood does not see that as a significant issue.

He added: "When I have spoken to (chief executive) Ivan Gazidis he is very confident that there isn't a problem.

"Arsene doesn't like to do these things in the middle of the season."

On Wenger's contribution to the north London club, Hill-Wood added: "He has transformed the place. Most importantly really, I think he changed the way football was played in this country.

"It looks promising this season - but I really could never have imagined that we would be talking about a 1,000th game (under Wenger).

"I don't think any of us thought he would be even half as successful as he was."
