Arsene Wenger says his "professionalism or commitment" cannot be questioned but that uncertainty over his future contributed to Arsenal failing to qualify for the Champions League.

It is the first time Arsenal, who finished fifth, have failed to qualify for the competition for 20 years.

Wenger, whose contract expires this summer, says his future will be decided after the FA Cup final on 27 May.

"I have said no to every club in the world," said the Frenchman, 67.

Wenger has been in charge of the Gunners since 1996, winning three Premier Leagues and six FA Cups, but has faced protests from Arsenal supporters this season calling for him to quit.

"I believe since January we have played in a very difficult environment for different reasons," he added.

"Some you know about and that's very difficult for a group of players to cope with that - and some other reasons we will talk about on another day.

"Psychologically the atmosphere was absolutely horrendous. It has been difficult, yes, and certainly my personal situation has contributed to that but you can never question my professionalism or commitment."
