Wenger: European Super League is "inevitable"

Arsene Wenger takes one of his last Arsenal training sessions

Wenger was forced to battle to keep Arsenal competitive despite the financial handicap of paying back bank loans which enabled the club to build their state-of-the-art stadium. "It's a special society where there is a completely different philosophy compared to other countries", he added.

He has competed for the Champions League with Juventus and The Sun say his ultimate dream would be to steer Arsenal to the European Trophy.

"(Champions League) is the big attraction, it is what everyone wants, especially the top players around the world.

"But if you have Real Madrid vs Arsenal or Manchester United vs Bayern Munich every week, the audiences will be good". First of all, to share money between the big clubs and small clubs will become a problem. Why?

The Telegraph report that "secret meetings" between league executives have taken place over the years to push the agenda of a "super league", but the notion is a controversial one in England, where the Premier League reigns supreme.

The New York Times says that City and United were joined in the Federation Internationale de Football Association meeting by European rivals Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

"People want to watch quality. So we have to share the money but nobody is interested in you".

"If the European League comes, all the leagues will be smaller".

"Because there was more questioning as well, you do not feel the same adhesion to what you do and when you stay here for such a long period you question yourself 'is it time now to go or not?'"

Wenger was in unusually reflective mood as he prepared for the final match of his Arsenal tenure at Huddersfield Town tomorrow.

The Frenchman was at the helm when Arsenal swapped the historic Highbury for the £390m Emirates Stadium in 2006.

"I believe I had an impact on the club as a whole because the club is in a strong position, it has a new stadium, a new training ground and new players", Wenger said.
