Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger has admitted that he often thinks about retirement, but not for more than five seconds as he looks to mastermind our fourth Premier League title, The Guardian reports.
Wenger has two years left on his current deal, but it seems as though he hasn’t paid too much attention to what will transpire following that and stated that he remains as enthusiastic as ever.
Following back-to-back FA Cup triumphs, making him the competition’s most decorated modern manager, a Premier League title is certainly the trophy in Wenger’s sights.
The financial shackles have also been lifted and all the ingredients are there for a title challenge.

“Retirement? Yes, it crosses my mind sometimes but for no longer than five seconds because I panic a little bit,” Wenger admitted to the publication.
“Enthusiasm? That is not a problem, honestly. I am more committed than ever for that.
“I just think the number of times you have done it doesn’t count. It is how much you love what you do that counts.”
With all that Wenger has achieved at the club, signing off without winning the Premier League again or breaking his duck in the Champions League would be disappointing.
One gets the impression that the Frenchman is now desperate to make the most of the foundations he has laid over the past few years.
Whenever the legendary manager decides to step down, his successor will have very big boots to fill.
