Arsene Wenger has revealed he is scared at the thought of leaving his post as Arsenal manager.
The French man has been manager since 1996 and is gradually approaching the end of his career.
At 68, Wenger has just a couple more years left in him and he has revealed he is frightened at the thought of ending his career.
In 2015, the French man was widely expected to leave the Emirates and again towards the end of last season, he was also expected to quit but on both occasions, he signed two year extensions.
With just over a year-and-a-half left in his current deal, Wenger says he is already thinking of when he would have to call it a day. The manager says it is a prospect which makes him apprehensive but insists he remains committed to Arsenal’s cause.
When asked if leaving Arsenal frightened him, Wenger told Sky Sports : “Yes because every end is to be in front of the unknown and of course it can be a bit frightening.
“But even if it is frightening, I’m not too scared.
“I just want to do what I do as long as I think I can do it well and I have the motivation to do it. On that front, I have no doubt.
“After, the day will come quickly, maybe not, but I am completely focused and completely committed.”
Wenger has been in management for almost 35 years and had spells at Nancy, Monaco and Nagoya Grampus Eight before he joined to Arsenal. He was a player before he became manager.
One can imagine why he is already frightened at the prospect of leaving the game. He’s spent all his years living in football and the game has become a part of him. However we can’t cheat nature, he will have to go home someday.
