Wenger: "I've had offers" from other clubs

Departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he won't be retiring this summer and that he has received a number of job offers.

"We've had the pleasure of raising the Coppa Italia in the last three years and we want to repeat this wonderful experience on Wednesday also as a gift to our wonderful fans".

Ozil is Arsenal's best-paid player after signing a contract worth £350,000 per week in February, but his team-mates have begun to question the "mystery illnesses" that have seen him frequently sidelined.

Ozil has featured in 26 of Arsenal's 36 Premier League games this season, but there has been scrutiny over some of the games he has missed.

Many believe the new man coming in will need to do a significant rebuilding job to even get Arsenal back into the Champions League, but Wenger is not of the same opinion.

Two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, one from Sead Kolasinac and one from Alex Iwobi ensured Wenger got the ideal farewell, and after the game the players relieved some of stresses and strains of a long campaign with a party. Overall, I will work.

"As long as I feel I want to", he replied when asked how long he would like to continue working for. He gave me, a foreign manager, a chance when no one knew me here. "It was a sad day when I heard". "That is something that I will miss". They look 'oh he is old.'. "I brought him here and I love the player and the person". If I was really objective then I would pick myself every week. "I don't play with the players, they are a bit too quick for me".
