Im an Arsenal man and after that I am an expert. I can not stop functioning, said Wenger.

Wenger guided Arsenal into the top four of the Premier League – and so the Champions League – for 20 successive seasons, but his reign in the Emirates stopped following the Gunners final fifth and sixth in his final two seasons responsible.
Wenger was eager to defend his own record, saying:I am aware that it is normal that people always desire more. We won a great deal and we built that the [Emirates] stadium.
Its hard to explain today the situation where we constructed the stadium since the turnovers now happen to be multiplied by five.
After we chose to construct the arena, we had a turnover of #90m and the stadium was #430m. Then the pressure is truly there and that I believe to come from the period in a very healthy situation was a tiny bit of a miracle.
The next move of wenger will see him leave management and take a role with FIFA, and he also states hell choose whether to take the job in the future.
It is chief of soccer development in the world and this decision will be made very soon, he said. They look for individuals who have enormous experience and knowledge of the sport whove heard a lot
