Arsenal boss Wenger has no retirement thoughts

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."
