Arsene Wenger is currently the longest serving Premier League manager and he has spent up to 20 years at Arsenal.
He is currently in the final year of his contract and there is no telling if he would hand in the towel at the end of this season.
There have been speculations over who would fit into his shoes when he takes a bow and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe among Ronald Koeman and Joachim Low tops the list of his potential successor.
And Wenger, who is undecided on whether to extend his stay at Arsenal, insists the hiring of his successor will be solely down to the board.
“I think it is very important in the club that everybody does what he is paid for,” he told beIN Sports.
“My job is to be the manager of the club and to be responsible for the style of play and the technical policy of the club. The board’s responsibility will be to choose the next manager so that is not my job
“If they ask my opinion, I will give it in an honest way, but it will not be me to choose the next manager. I’m not in their position, I am in my position.
“The love story I have with the club is linked as well with the fact the board has always shown faith in me and I’m very grateful for that.
“No matter what happens, I will have to make my decision, the board will have to make a decision and I will respect the decision of the board anyway.
“Even if I wish to stay on I will respect always the decision of the board – they have the responsibility to do that.”
