Arsene Wenger admits he wants to stay in management should he leave Arsenal this summer

Arsenal missed out on a Champions League spot last term and look destined to fall short again.

They crashed out of the FA Cup in the third round to Championship side Nottingham Forest, despite winning the competition last year.

And although they remain in the hunt for the Europa League, most fans would prefer a return to the big time.

However, Wenger has no plans to step away from the North Londoners, and is adamant he will get a job elsewhere should the decision be taken out of his hands.

Speaking to Bein Sports, he said: “Yes, of course [I want to manage after Arsenal], as long as I have the physical strength and the desire to do it. I know that depends on my physical status and how well I am mentally. It’s a decision I’ll have to make at some stage.

“At the moment I live in the present and I just want to do as well as I can for my club and I don’t worry too much what happens to me.

“You don’t stay 22 years at a club the stature of Arsenal without a total complete commitment and the sacrifice of your life.

“That will not change today until the end of the season, until the end of my contract, if I can I will do that. After I don’t know what I will do.”

“[Motivation?] I could easily stop now but somebody asked me yesterday if I started all again [what to change], I said, ‘look, it’s something I ignored’. My passion for the game is exactly the same.

“Something I ignored when I started as a young manager when I started to go into this job. I was not sure that I had the qualities to do this job. But I ignored completely how much every defeat will make me suffer.

“And if something [happened], I would restart again. I would think, ‘do you really want to do that my friend?’ Because every defeat is a scar for the rest of your life, in your body, and people ignore maybe.

“Some fans suffer as well very highly, but when you’re involved every day and every game you lose believe me, that’s a test.”
