Arsene Wenger has said to beIN Sport that he will undoubtedly still be Arsenal manager by the time next season comes around.
The 66-year-old's future in North London has been the focus of debate in recent weeks as the Gunners look set to endure a trophiless season - despite things looking so promising just a matter of weeks ago.
As it stands, Arsenal, who were knocked out of the Champions League and FA Cup within days of each other, are 11 points behind shock Premier League leaders Leicester City.
Given the deficit from the Foxes, frustrations have reached boiling point at the Emirates, and one group of fans unfurled an anti-Wenger banner at the club's FA Cup win at Hull City earlier this month.
But the Frenchman, who could celebrate 20 years as Arsenal boss in September, was unequivocal in his claim that he will still be in charge when the 2016-17 campaign comes around.
"I have no doubt, no, because I am committed. When I do something I do it 100 per cent. I am always committed to give my best as long as I am at the club," he said to beIN Sport.
"I have my conscience. What is most important is that I give my best every day I work for the club I love.
"If I can share that love with the supporters it's even better. But at the end of the day I want to make sure I give my best."
Wenger has, to his credit, played a big role in building the club to what it is today, having won three Premier League titles - including an unbeaten season during the 2003-04 term - and six FA Cup crowns during his 19-year stay.
He perhaps deserves another chance in which to right the wrongs of this campaign, but there is a school of thought that suggests this season, of all seasons, was his best shot at delivering another league success.
