  • Wenger clarifies comment on Arsenal exit 'timing'

He has not taken a new job since leaving a year ago, with Chelsea also seen as potential suitors if Antonio Conte leaves at the end of the season.

In response, Wenger admitted that "the timing was not really my decision".

Vieira's name has been floated in the media as one of the possible candidates to take over the Gunner's bench upon Wenger's retirement at the end of this season following 22 years as Arsenal's coach, reports Efe. I think it will be surreal for me when I don't work. I don't know. I want to do as well as I can.

'What is important for me is to focus and concentrate about what I'm doing at the moment. You are never sure you do the right thing, but life is interesting because you have to deal with different situations. "At the moment, I'm not ready to commit to anything else than to give my best for Arsenal football club". The likes of Julian Naglesmann, Joachim Low, Mikel Arteta, Leonardo Jardim, Luis Enrique and even Massimiliano Allegri have all been chosen as potential successors to longest serving manager in the Premier League.

Wenger, who revealed former rival Alex Ferguson called him on Tuesday, said he wanted a Hollywood-style ending for the players more than for himself.




"My biggest satisfaction would be to be successful together with the group of players that I have".

Arsenal will also be missing the service of their superb midfielder Mohamed Elneny who has been ruled out of the season, while Emerick Aubameyang is not eligible to play for the Gunners.

Wenger will go into his final European home game as Arsenal boss with the boost of having Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere and Petr Cech available.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has not fully recovered from his medial knee ligament injury and hence, he has been excluded from the squad.
