Arsene Wenger refuses to rule out football director role amid PSG links

The club have been on the look out for a new manager since Wenger announced late last month that he'll leave Arsenal at the end of the season following nearly 22-years in charge.

Arsene Wenger used his farewell news conference as Arsenal manager on Thursday to urge his successor to "respect the values of the club". Speaking in an interview uploaded on the official Facebook page of Arsenal Football Club, the French manager said that he regrets never visiting the country in his life.

"But I would like to say to all the Arsenal lovers, take care of the values of the club".

"A domestic league will play Tuesday-Wednesday".

Wenger said he is unsure about his immediate plans, but has been linked with a position as general manager at Paris St Germain (PSG).

Only Swansea (27) have scored fewer Premier League goals than Huddersfield's 28 this season. While it is well documented that Arsenal are now without any away points since the turn of this year, this only seems to add to the occasion of a story which feels written in advance to provide one final win against the odds for Wenger.

He said: "It is an important night for us".

For whoever replaces Wenger, though, the Emirates will be a massive benefit as he won't have either the memories of Highbury or the financial restraints of the debt to deal with. And when asked if there was on result he'd want to change from the last 22 years, Wenger picked that loss even over the 2006 Champions League final defeat.

"When I finish here I can reconnect a bit and with who I am really".

"I was in the centre circle with Arsene and I looked across to the dugouts and said how unusually far apart they were".

Wenger believes that Tottenham will be forced to confront similarly harsh realities in the short-to-medium term as they live their own stadium rebuild.

It has been a costly investment for Spurs, one which could see Tottenham part with two-time reigning Premier League Golden Boot victor and England global Kane, according to Wenger. There was something like 50 feet between them, which you don't get at most grounds.
