“Until the end of my life I will be in football, I don’t know as a director or a manager as long as possible as a manager but one day that will stop.

“I will stay in football of course”

So will we really see the 68-year-old hastily unzipping his long coat on a touchline in Qatar?

The long-time Gunners boss was coy in his response: “Maybe, you never know.”
