Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has dismissed concerns over the lack of a succession plan being in place.

Wenger refuses to discuss a succession plan at Arsenal in light of the slump at Manchester United following Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

"The ideal world exists only in the imagination of the human being.

"Once you leave a club you want it to go as well as possible.

"That's what Ferguson wanted as well. If it's not working as well as expected, then it's not Ferguson's fault.

"You do well as long as you can. Its competition and cyclical as well. My only focus is to win the next game."
