Wenger era ends at Arsenal amid 'Kroenke you're next' banner

"But hopefully hopefully he can stay and finish what we have started together in the coming years".

Departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke about his desire to come to India in the near future, in an interview with the club's official Facebook page on Saturday. While Wenger's side will have their own motivation, they will have to overcome a vocal, one-sided support from the terraces which is sure to be unrelenting throughout the course of the match.

"We had to do it".

After working tirelessly for so long, he could well want the return of action quicker than expected. "That would be very hard, I think on that day I would stay at home", he said.

Pep Guardiola's side have been focused on rewriting the record books since clinching the English title nearly a month ago and they added one last landmark achievement on the final day of the season.

It proved costly for the Gunners, as they had to play the rest of the 75 minutes with just ten men on the field.

Arsene Wenger believes Tottenham may be forced to sell the likes of Harry Kane to cover off the cost of their move into a new stadium.

Only three other players - Tiger Woods, Greg Norman and Nick Faldo - have been at the top longer than his current stay. He would have been dead. "Even making 60 per cent, I win the tournament". "I don't quit, man".

"There are some things that have changed".

The 68-year-old said that a new elite competition was imminent as big clubs across Europe were unhappy with the current distribution of revenue from domestic TV income with their smaller counterparts. The prices have gone up.

"The prices for the stadiums have doubled but the transfers of the players have tripled or quadrupled".

Arsene Wenger was greeted warmly by fans outside the stadium and the players inside the stadium as he made his way onto the pitch between a guard of honour formed by the Huddersfield squad. Today a guy like Kane, I don't know for much they can sell him.

"So they might have to sell players to get more financial supply. But they have to face it".

Replacing Arsène Wenger will not be easy.

"It's all there. The financial situation, we have good players, the stadium - it's all there", Wenger said. But he admitted has navigation of the city still leaves a lot to be desired. "I am fascinated by India, I don't really know why", Wenger told Arsenal Media.
