Wenger says timing of his Arsenal departure not his decision

The Gunners are embarking on their search for a replacement for their iconic manager Wenger after the Frenchman confirmed that he will stand down as Arsenal manager at the end of the 2017-18 season.

Outgoing Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger strongly believes Arsenal has the quality to challenge for the title with "two or three additions" from his successor.

"Honestly it's not something which will stop me doing what I am doing at the moment".

Vieira said that while he had a special relationship with Arsenal, that alone would not prompt him to return to England. You are never sure you do the right thing, but life is interesting because you have to deal with different situations.

"PSG look like they might have a manager already but they will be there, he turned down Real Madrid years ago too but I doubt he will get a job like that". I don't know now how addicted I am. I want to do it for them, to achieve something for them.

The chairman of the table tennis section of the Lagos Country Club, Charles Oshuntuyi, said they were very happy to be part of the project, stressing that the competition aligned with the vision of the club to help develop budding talents in the country.

"Is there a flawless goodbye?" We brought him for motivation, to play and to intimidate'. But, if the question is as simple as: "Are you ready to manage any teams in Europe?", then I would say: "Yes".

"I am a bit like a guy who plays Russian Roulette every week and suddenly has no gun any more - so, I will see how much I miss that gun".

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.

However, according to The Sun, the service of Wenger will be recognised ahead of Arsenal's showdown with Burnley at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, May 6.

Wenger is also hopeful that Henrikh Mkhitaryan could recover from a knee injury to feature in the second leg in Madrid next week but Mohamed Elneny is out for the rest of the season.
