Arsene Wenger reveals he will continue to work in football after Arsenal exit

Arsene Wenger has admitted that although he may be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, he will not be leaving football for good and has instead vowed to work on.

Wenger, 68, made the shock announcement on Friday morning that he will be departing his beloved Arsenal at the end of the season, ending a 22-year association with the club.

However, his achievements in north London will not be his final contribution to football, as he has revealed he will continue working in the sport, though the Frenchman has conceded he is unsure of his next destination.

Wenger will be aiming to leave the Gunners on a high note by winning the Europa League, as they lock horns with Atletico Madrid in the semi-final of the competition, with the first leg taking place at the Emirates on Thursday night.

Talking to reporters, via ESPN, ahead of the crunch clash, he said on his future: “Honestly, I don’t know what I will do.

“Will I take a little rest? I will continue to work, that is for sure.

“At the moment, I’m not ready to commit to anything else than to give my best for Arsenal football club.”

Arsenal have struggled in the Premier League this season and now face consecutive finishes outside of the top four, though victory in the Europa League would provide the north London club with a backdoor entrance into the Champions League for next season.

The Gunners will host the first leg Thursday evening, before travelling to the Spanish capital next week to take on Diego Simeone’s side at the Wanda Metropolitano in the semi-final second leg.
