Wenger focused on Arsenal despite desire to keep working elsewhere


Wenger is hoping his wins the last piece of silverware as Arsenal boss before his departure this summer.

Wenger last week announced he would be leaving Arsenal after 22 years in charge and takes the Gunners to Old Trafford for the final time on Sunday.

"The timing was not really my decision", Wenger said.

When asked directly if he had been approached by Arsenal, Simeone replied: "No I haven't spoken with anyone at Arsenal".

"I do my job, keep my routine and focus on what I have to do everyday and prepare well for the games". I try to observe, learn and admire (his work).

Wenger added that he intends to carry on working in the future "for sure".

Wenger has six games left at Arsenal, beginning on Thursday with the Europa League semi-final first-leg at home to Atletico Madrid.

"I honestly don't know what I will do". Arsene Wenger recently revealed that he would step down at the end of the season, while Antonio Conte has been widely tipped to leave the SW6 as well.

The former will be returning from his three-game suspension, while the latter is coming back from an injury suffered in Game 2. That didn't happen, but the other people you're playing against are pros and they're trying, too, and they're competitive.

"I want to win and continue to do what I have done my whole life", he stated.

"Griezzy is a very good player who I met almost 10 years ago now", Lacazette told Arsenal's official website. It is another one certainly I will face one day.

They laughed their way through the NBA London game at the O2 earlier this year, and have been dubbed Griezzy and Lacaz by their France team-mates, and Lacazette admits the their bond is particularly strong.

"I want to do it for them, to achieve something with them because I feel they have a special mental quality".

Experienced managers such as Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus, former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique, Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim and Germany manager Joachim Low were all being mentioned as potential candidates to take over the vacant seat at Arsenal.
