I'll manage next year even if I leave Arsenal: Arsene Wenger
Arsene Wenger insists the curtain will not come down on his managerial career even if he announces his departure from Arsenal in the next two months
London: Arsene Wenger insists the curtain will not come down on his managerial career even if he announces his departure from Arsenal in the next two months.
The 67-year-old has been in charge of the Gunners for more than 20 years but has seen his position come under scrutiny following the 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. He confirmed yesterday that he would make a decision on his position in either March or in April. But he said he would look to manage elsewhere if he opted not to renew his contract.
When asked if he ever feels like he has had enough of management, he replied: “No. No matter what happens, I will manage next season, whether it’s here or somewhere else. That’s absolutely for sure. On a night like that, of course I hate defeat and I hate to lose games. I want to do extremely well for this club and I feel a big responsibility.
“You do not stay somewhere for 20 years only to walk out after a defeat like that. I think what is important is that the club makes the right decision for the future. I did not work here for 20 years not to care about this club. I had many opportunities to go somewhere else during that period and I care about this club and I care about its future.”
