Arsenal boss Wenger rejects retirement talk: I ain't going anywhere

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he's going nowhere. Despite the frustrations of the last 12 months, losing the likes of Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Cesc Fabregas, Alex Song and star striker Robin van Persie, the ­Gunners boss remains defiant.

"There are still miles in my legs," he said ahead of this ­afternoon's clash with Liverpool at Anfield. "In life it is like you are going on a mission and it does not cross my mind to finish."

And there were overtones of the philosophy of his old adversary Sir Alex Ferguson as he spoke. Sir Alex - now 71 - once said: ­"Retirement is for young ­people."

In a similar fashion, Wenger, 62, said: "You work as long as you can."
