Wenger on his final season in Champions League
Arsene Wenger insists he is under no pressure to deliver in what could be his final season, as Arsenal boss at least, in the Champions League.
The Frenchman has been recognized for his impressive record of never failing to qualify for the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition during his reign at Arsenal.
However, one trophy which has eluded Wenger, who has was won three Premier League titles and six FA cups, is the Champions League crown.
And when asked about whether he is motivated to win the competition more than ever as he enters the final year of his contract, the 66-year-old gave another cryptic response.
“I just focus on the next game. I don’t think like that.” Wenger said
“I think I played over 170 games in the Champions League and it’s every time the same: you want to do well in the next one. My personal case is not at stake in that at all.”
According to Wenger, Tuesday night’s opponents have shown interest in his services in the past but he was never tempted to join PSG.
“Look, [I didn’t say yes] because I love where I am. I know well the owners, but I feel always I remained loyal to Arsenal Football Club because I think it’s a club that has the qualities I love. And, that’s why.”
