Wenger believes it will be a minor disappointment for the Gunners.
He said: "That can happen. You've certainly tried to go out with a girl but find she has chosen someone else. You don't commit suicide.
"I don't want to speak in detail about what has happened. One day, why not?
"But now it's not the moment to talk about that. I just said it's over. We have to get on with our lives."
