Arsenal will challenge for Premier League title next season - Wenger

The Frenchman will take charge of his final Arsenal game when his side travel to face Huddersfield on Sunday, bringing down the curtain on nearly 22 years at the helm.

Arsenal have whittled down their shortlist of candidates to replace the departing Arsene Wenger, with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and Mikel Arteta and Patrick Vieira in serious consideration. It's a chance for the players to see something different.

"I enjoyed some aspects of it, yes - and not all", he said.

"I feel that if you look at our season, at home we have had championship-winning form", he said.

Then again, this is coming from a man who believes that a record of failing at every club he's ever managed would stand him in good stead to be Wenger's successor, so perhaps we shouldn't be too surprised.

Leicester, who are ninth, have lost four and drawn one of their last five league matches. "They were fantastic. There is a special bond in this team. Hopefully that will come out next season".

"He had to wait for such a long time". Maybe go to Russian Federation.

'I have some work to do in France [next week] on Monday, Tuesday. "After that, I don't know".

In contrast, DT has regularly referred back to the glory years under Wenger and insisted that he's disappointed that his legacy was tarnished by poor results lately and so he is just showing his admiration for the manager.

"From 2006-2015 was certainly a period where I needed to be the strongest and did the best job", he said. "But I am very passionate and at a very young age I realised that if I want to survive in this job I have to get control over my emotions or I will not survive", he told his final pre-match news conference.

"I had the opportunity, but at the moment I am behind England and behind Gareth Southgate and hopefully he will stay for 22 years".
