Arsenal boss Wenger has no plans for retirement

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he's not thinking of retirement.

Wenger is now the longest serving manager in English football with 17 years under his belt at Arsenal.

Asked when he expects to retire, he smiled: "It's very difficult to give you that answer because I don't know exactly when I'll die!

"For me, the best moments are every important game you win and the worst is every defeat, because I experience every defeat like a death.

"Defeat has to hurt you very much to survive in this job because that's when you learn a lot about yourself.

"Every defeat is terrible for me so I don't know if I will stay at Arsenal for the rest of my career.

"I have one year on my contract and after that I will see how it goes during the season.

"My heart is with this club and I have been here for a long, long time but I want to do well for Arsenal and that will decide how long I stay."
