EPL: Leaving Arsenal not my decision, Wenger breaks silence

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has subtly indicated that he did not quit the club in May 2018 as many fans thought.

The French tactician made the revelation in his new documentary.

Wneger stated that “it was not really” his decision to step down from his position as manager at the Emirate after 22 years in charge.

A notable figure in the English Premier League, the revered Frenchman also described his Arsenal exit as “a funeral”.

During his stint with the Gunners, Wenger won three league titles and seven FA Cups, including league and cup doubles in both 1998 and 2002.

Wenger also oversaw the ‘Invincibles’ season back in 2004, when Arsenal went the entire season without defeat.

However, the final years of his reign were marred by fan protest after some disappointing campaigns.

A few days after announcing he was stepping down, Wenger hinted that the call was “not really” his decision. And it now appears he could be about to set the record straight.

Speaking ahead of the launch of his new documentary, Arsène Wenger: Invincible, Wenger said: “You realise that the end of something is like a funeral.”

Also in the trailer, former Gunners forward Dennis Bergkamp gave an insight into Wenger’s struggles following the decision, with the Dutch ace, saying: “It would have been easier if he had made the decision.”
