Arsene Wenger “Regrets” 22 Years As Arsenal Manager.
Arsenal Wenger who has been Arsenal Manager since 1996, reveals regret for having sacrificing everything he did. Wenger who was replaced by former Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery left the Gunners at the end of last season following 22 years at the helm. Speaking to broadcaster RTL, Wenger said: “Perhaps staying at the same club for 22 years. I’m someone who likes to move around a lot, but I also like a challenge. I’ve been a prisoner of my own challenge at times.
“I regret having sacrificed everything I did because I realise I’ve hurt a lot of people around me. I’ve neglected a lot of people. I’ve neglected my family, I’ve neglected many close ones.”
Wenger left the Gunners at the end of last season following 22 years at the helm, where he won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, as well as going the season undefeated to win the title in 2003/04. After his departure from the Emirates, he was replaced by former Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery. “Deep down though, the obsessed man is selfish in his pursuit of what he loves. He ignores a lot of other things. But it’s a bone to chase at the same time,”he adds.
The 68-year old ex Arsenal manager holds the record for the longest serving manager in Europe.
