Recently, Wenger accepted an exclusive interview with the BBC. He said
At the beginning of the interview, Wenger confessed to Arsenal affectionately. "Arsenal means the love of my life.
"I am a bit like a parent who sees off my children. Even though I no longer contact them, I still love them." Wenger said, "Since leaving office, I have never returned to the Emirates Stadium. I chose to and The club keeps a distance, but it doesn’t mean to keep it emotionally. I don’t want people to see me as a shadow, as if trying to influence the club and dictate its operations. So I think the best option is to keep the distance."
When coaching the Gunners, Wenger's team has repeatedly passed by big-name superstars. Recalling this experience, Wenger can hardly hide his regret: "Of course I would think: if someone signs the first sign. For example, if Ronaldo joins Henry, Pires, Wiltord, Bergkamp, The Gunners may score 200 goals in a season! Sometimes you will regret it and feel that this is because your decision is not decisive enough, or the financial situation of the team does not allow you. But I must admit,
Speaking of these giant teams, Wenger also revealed that he was close to coaching Real Madrid at one time, but twice chose to refuse the invitation. "The closest team to coach is of course Real Madrid, because not many people will reject them twice, and another option is to stay in a team that does not have enough resources to win the championship." Wenger recalled, "but I told myself Now that I have chosen to face the challenge of coaching Arsenal, we must stick to it to the end."
As a generation of famous coach, Wenger's contribution to the world football is indelible. When asked what marks he wanted to leave for world football, Wenger said frankly: "I hope people will have the impression of me as a person who serves the club wholeheartedly, is honest and upright, and loves the club. I have contributed my life to Arsenal. The best time in China, no matter how the surrounding environment changes, I always have the same passion for Arsenal."
