Aubameyang thought Wenger was going to be there in Arsenal 'for years'

Arsenal Ready To Gamble On Arteta As Wenger Replacement

Arsenal have started a clearout of their backroom staff following the departure of manager Arsene Wenger, as former midfielder Mikel Arteta becomes the favourite to replace the Frenchman.

It was Arsenal's first Premier League away win this year at the end of another disappointing campaign, which forced Wenger's announcement three weeks ago that it would be his last in charge.

He continued: "I thought he would be at Arsenal for years!"

"It was spontaneous because I know that we've disappointed the away fans this season, that many of them they live the whole week and use their spare money to travel up to games", he explained. The 36-year-old would be a risk as he has never managed before but he has spent time under Pep Guardiola and this could make him the ideal man for the job. When asked in a Q&A with Arsenal fans to name the one player he wished he had signed for the club the legendary Frenchman replied: "I almost signed Ronaldo and I think that would have changed the history of Arsenal Football Club".

Wenger insists he remains unsure what his next move will be and said he would steer clear of any reunion with a club he has managed for over two decades. At Juventus he's done really good. "I don't see Anelotti going there at all".

Did Trump blink on China to help ZTE, or his own business?
A security firm, Kryptowire, disclosed in 2016 that Chinese phones are loaded with software that sends a user's data to Beijing. As he tweeted on Monday: "ZTE, the large Chinese phone company, buys a big percentage of individual parts from USA companies".

Former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique is reportedly interested in succeeding Wenger at the Emirates, but his wage demands are putting Arsenal off.

Wenger could be forgiven for wanting to leave behind the game that has consumed his life since he was a youth-team player in France.

Ultimately, Sunday's game meant little other than the chance for Wenger to mark his last game in charge with a win.

Goalkeeper David Ospina, who could end up leaving the Gunners this summer anyway, said last week that he and his teammates don't like the uncertainty surrounding Wenger's successor.
