Arsene Wenger says he would not swap Emirates for more Arsenal trophies

  • Arsenal Team average- 6.46

Wenger arrived from Japan in 1996 and the three-time Premier League victor will farewell Arsenal when the Gunners face Huddersfield Town on the final day of the season on Sunday.

And he finally explained why he enjoyed holding his media get togethers at 8:45am.

The 24-year-old instead believes the prospect of playing in the Champions League at their new ground will be a big pulling factor in attracting new recruits this summer.

While City ended the season with a 1-0 win at St Mary's, Gunners boss Wenger signed off by beating Huddersfield by the same scoreline.

"I would say personally, from 2006 to 2015 was certainly the period where I needed to be the strongest and did the best job", Wenger said when asked of his proudest achievement, as quoted by ESPN FC.

But what would having the biggest and best English clubs competing week in, week out on the continent mean for the Premier League?

Roberto Mancini Named Italy's New Manager
It will be a first role in worldwide management for Mancini, who has left Russian club Zenit St Petersburg to take up the post. The FIGC said it had "concluded an agreement with Roberto Mancini who will hold the position of coach of the national team".


"I'm not sure 100 per cent that I'm right but I feel inside our game there are some voices behind the scenes coming up to do something about that, especially if the rules become too restrictive for these clubs". Wednesday night's defeat was their seventh in a row in the league and they are the only side in the top four divisions without an away point in 2018.

"We had to do it", Wenger said."There is no club that can turn people who wanted to attend the game down".

The club announced he would be leaving on April 20 with the Gunners still in the Europa League semi-finals and with five Premier League games remaining.

"So if you want to make the Premier League more attractive you have to go down to 16 teams and make a real competition of it".

The Telegraph report that "secret meetings" between league executives have taken place over the years to push the agenda of a "super league", but the notion is a controversial one in England, where the Premier League reigns supreme. "Not the most glamorous maybe, but the most hard".

Wenger anticipated that a European league would be up and running within 10 years and this week extended that timeline by a few more.
