Wenger: Taking another Premier League job would betray Arsenal

Wenger: Taking another Premier League job would betray Arsenal

15 May 2018, 15:00

Arsene Wenger says he will not take another job in the Premier League as it would feel like a betrayal of Arsenal.

The veteran Frenchman is ending a 22-year stay at Arsenal but he has yet to confirm his next move, while former player Mikel Arteta is reportedly the front-runner to succeed him at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger, who signed off with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town on Sunday, says he is mulling over his options but is unlikely to stay in English football.

"It will be very difficult for me [without Arsenal]," Wenger told the official Arsenal website.

"At the moment if I want to continue to work, I think I have to move out of the country because my gut feeling at the moment is that I would feel I would betray my club by staying in England.

"People might feel that I've betrayed what I've built here. That is the problem I face at the moment.

"My club is here, my heart is here and will be forever. As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley game, I'm a fan above all."
