Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted he's preparing for his departure.

Wenger feels whoever eventually takes the team forwards will have a more than solid base.

He said: "I believe as a manager you have to make sure that on the day I leave, the club is in a fantastic situation, that the guy who comes in after me has a good chance to be successful, that he finds a strong financial situation, a strong team and the club has a structure which can allow him to have success.

"That is what has always been my target."
