Cape Town - Former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman believes Arsene Wenger should get a new contract after winning nine major trophies during his 20 year reign.

The Gunners won their seventh game in a row on Wednesday, trouncing Ludogorets 6-0 in the Champions League, and are second in the Premier League.

However, Wenger has faced criticism for Arsenal's failure to lift the Premier League title since 2004, when the Gunners went the whole season undefeated.

The Frenchman's contract expires at the end of the campaign, but Seaman believes Arsenal would be taking a gamble if they dispensed with the 66-year-old.

"I hope he stays, they should go all out to keep him," said Seaman after being inducted into the National Football Museum's Hall of Fame.

"It doesn't work out straight away every time.

"Manchester United have struggled a little bit since Sir Alex left. They have changed managers again and have a great one now.

"But Arsenal have a great manager already."
