He is still to decide what he will do next season, whether or not he will stay at Emirates Stadium at least for another year, but one thing is for sure, as long as he’s running the show at Arsenal, there will be no ‘director of football’ at the club.
No director of football, I do not know what it means. Is it someone who stands on the road and directs the players left and right? I never understood what it means, director of football. I am manager of Arsenal and as long as I am manager I will decide what happens on the technical front. That is it
Arsene Wenger told reporters in a Press conference, after repeating that he’s still not ready to say what exactly will happen next season with him.
The Frenchman was also asked about Arsenal players hugging with Man United counterparts before Sunday’s derby at Emirates.
I understand the pundits are surprised by that because 10-15 years ago that did not exist
Wenger said, referring to Phil Neville and Martin Keown who both disliked what the cameras showed from the tunnel before the teams went out for kick-off.
I was surprised as well but I must confess it does not stop players concentrating on the game. Also, there are more cameras now. Maybe it happened before but there were no cameras in the tunnel. It is an overall international thing now. It is the same at Real Madrid and Barcelona
the Arsenal manager commented.
