Amid celebrations of his 20th year at the club, Arsene Wenger reveals he could take a bow at any point in time.
Wenger is in the final year of his current contract and there is no telling if he’s going to sign an extension with the club. Speculation was stirred that the French tactician could become the manager of the Three Lions after the sack of Sam Allardyce.
Nonetheless, Wenger has now ruled out remaining at the Emirates over the next five years. He also stated that he would decide on his future at the end of this season.
He said: “I rule nothing out because I want to work and I want to do well.
“I accept that it can finish tomorrow as well. It’s a love story and you always expect a love story to last forever, but it can always stop suddenly.
“What will influence me the most is the fact that I feel I do well and can move this team forward.”
Having spent 20-years managing Arsenal, Wenger was presented with a crystal vase at his press conference yesterday, he also gave commemorative pens to the media.
He said: “I think it is a privilege for me, I do not look back. Maybe what people will keep is the Invincible year.
“But for me the job of a manager is to do the maximum with what you have available and that is what I try to do.
“After is like a marathon, you do one step after another and when you look back you have done the distance. We are obsessed always by the next game and that is what we expect always: the perfect game in the next one. That is what we work for.
“I want to win absolutely everything and play the perfect game in every single game, that is my dream. Get people to enjoy what they see, and the players to enjoy what they do.
“Will anyone reach 20 years again? I hope so, because it is not necessarily a job where you have to be unstable.
“But you look at the numbers and it is quite worrying, the average life expectancy of a manager in England is 18 months so that is not very promising.”
