After spending up to 20years at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger’s retirement is in sight. In hindsight, it will be nostalgic reminiscing his reign at Arsenal following the legacies he has built over the years.
Wenger is in the final year of his current contract for Arsenal, we are all in suspense as to whether he will sign another contract or throw in the towel at the end of the season.
He has claimed that who ever takes over the baton from him will inherited a stable Arsenal than he did because of the work he has done since he became manager.
During his two decades in north London, Wenger has overseen Arsenal’s move from Highbury to The Emirates and won three Premier League titles and six FA Cups.
Looking back on his time in England, Wenger said: ‘I always felt that as a manager you have an influence on three levels.
“One, on the individual careers of the players – you are not successful with every player. Two, on the style of play and the results of the team. Three, on the structure of the club.
‘I like to think that the club today is at a different level to when I arrived and as well, when I leave, that I leave a good team with a strong financial resources and good structures at the club.’
The 66-year-old French tactician say he would love to see someone move the club to a higher level, while still maintaining the ideology he has developed during his 20years at the club.
He added: ‘My pride [would be] to see somebody come in and do better. At least he is in a position to do better. It is important I think for the legacy.
‘For me the club is also about identity and values. The values are carried here by the manager because I have stayed here for a long time.
‘I hope that these values, which are respected all over the world, will continue because it is based on respect, humility, togetherness – and also that the club moves forward.’
