Arsenal boss Wenger: Premiership best in world on every level

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes he's working in the best league in the world.

Wenger revealed he feels "more English" having spent 12 years in the country since he arrived from Grampus Eight to succeed Bruce Rioch at Arsenal and that the Premier League is the most enjoyable league to work in for a manager.

"I believe it is the best because the technical level is high, the commitment is high, the support is high, and the atmosphere in the games is high. The audiences on television are high and the people are intelligent," Wenger told BBC Radio Five Live.

"I enjoy it more than ever - I don't know why because I am a crazy type. I love the game, I love football and every day outside on the pitch and I enjoy not only working with people who enjoy doing what they do but they do it with class. And that is a privilege.

"I realised that I am much more English now than I thought I was - especially by looking at the countries in which I have worked and how I responded. I realise that being here for 12 years really had an impact on spirit.

"And looking to the happy moments I have had in this country you get attached to the place where you got your emotions especially because the love for the game here is so high.

"To walk away from that will be difficult. Until now my family have lived with my decisions so maybe I will have to give something back and listen to them. I love managing and coaching and of course it will stop one day but I don't know what I will do after."
