Arsenal boss Wenger: My holidays are dominated by transfer talks

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits even on holiday he's busy working on transfer deals.

Wenger, 58, said: "I'm a marathon runner - I don't need a rest.

"Whenever I go on holiday I'm quite lost but luckily there is always some work for me to do.

"Even on the beach I'll be on my phone arranging transfers, chatting to contacts or making plans for the coming season.

"It's the way I am, so even though my team does not play next week, I'll be working every day."

The pencil-thin Wenger keeps himself in physical shape with daily gym visits and regular runs around Arsenal's Colney training ground.

But he admits staying in peak mental condition is more of a problem.

He said: "You try to regulate the constant stress but I've no idea how much damage it's doing to me."
