As he celebrates his 12th anniversay as Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says retirement has not entered his thoughts. "It has not crossed my mind yet to consider a retirement age," he told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I don't feel any fatigue or desire to stop. I am very happy with what I do.

"Managing or coaching will stop one day and I don't know what I will do after that."

The Frenchman also said that he only recently realised how deep his affinity was with the country in which he now lives.

"I realise that I am much more English now than I thought I was," he said.

"Especially when I look at what happens in other countries and the way I respond to problems.

"Being here for 12 years has had a big impact on my spirit. My love for the game here is so high that to walk away from that would be difficult."
