Arsenal Backroom Staff Follow Arsene Wenger Out Of The Club

Arsene Wenger Arsenal

Departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he believes his next job - if he takes one - will be away from England for fear of betraying the London club.

Boro Primorac, a long-term coach and friend of Wenger, was always likely to leave and, as the outgoing manager prepares to clear his office later this week, a number of other backroom staff have also been relieved of their duties.

The sextet have been cleared out in preparation for Wenger's successor being appointed, who is likely to want to bring in his own coaching team.

After 7,895 days and 1,235 games, it was "au revoir" to Wenger as the Frenchman took charge of Arsenal for the last time.

"It was spontaneous because I know that we've disappointed the away fans this season, that many of them they live the whole week and use their spare money to travel up to games", he explained. We had disagreements which I accept but we had one thing in common: "we loved Arsenal football club and I wanted to share that with them today".

"Messi as well, because we were interested in him".

"At the beginning, it was really hard because physically I was not ready", said the forward, who managed 10 goals in 13 Premier League appearances this season.

"I should have announced every week I retire", Wenger said.

"Yes I had offers, yes, of course".

As well as winning seven FA Cups, Wenger picked up three league titles with the Gunners - including the famous Invincibles campaign in 2003/04. "It is good for the future and I am sure next season will be a good season".

It's a courageous, new, exciting and uncertain world for Arsenal and Arsenal fans, but after complaints about all the old familiar failings, isn't that exactly what people wanted?
