Arsenal boss Wenger still determined to succeed as a manager

Arsene Wenger says he is still driven by success as he enters in his 18th season in charge of the London club. "Certainly, I have a few more wrinkles now but what has stayed the same is the huge desire to win every single game," the 64 year old said in an Arsenal Twitter Q&A.

Frenchman Wenger, who began his managerial career at AS Nancy in 1984, said he was still learning about management.

"Every season you make wrong decisions. You have to go with your gut feeling sometimes, but you learn and analyse," he added.

Wenger was also asked by Twitter users whether he had his own version of the "hairdryer treatment" - former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's famously confrontational method of addressing players.

"It can only be an exceptional behaviour and every manager uses it," he said.
