It was suggested on Wednesday that the former Gunners right-back, who joined the club's coaching set-up in 1984, could step down at the end of the season. However, Arsenal have stressed that manager Arsene Wenger's right-hand man of 13 years is fully committed to the cause following a difficult run of results for the North London club. A statement on the club's official website read: "Contrary to media reports this morning, Arsenal assistant manager Pat Rice is not considering retirement at the end of the current season. "He remains a key part of Arsene Wenger's backroom staff is currently helping prepare the team for trip to Manchester United on Saturday."
