Arsene Wenger has revealed he could stay in management for at least four more years and insisted his preference is to stay at Arsenal.
The Arsenal manager is 67 and says he is as hungry as ever to be in the dugout despite the Gunners’ 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League this week.
Despite growing calls from top sports analysts and stakeholders to retire, says he doesn’t feel like retiring as he is only 67 and Man U manager, Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the age of 71, a statement that’ll surely rile Arsenal fans.
“Ferguson has some other interests in life and he was older [when he retired] than I am today,” Wenger told reporters. “He was four years older. He retired at 71 and I’m 67.”
When asked if he planned to carry on for four more years to match his old rival, he replied: “Maybe more, maybe less, I don’t know. Everybody is different.
“I do not want to take anything away from Ferguson, he was an absolutely unbelievable manager, but he had enough. He had enough. And I’m not at that stage.”
