​Outgoing Arsenal boss Wenger: My gut says to leave England

Arsene Wenger says he wants to continue to work but that it should be abroad.

The Frenchman feels so connected to the club that he cannot imagine working elsewhere in England.

"It will be very difficult for me [without Arsenal]," said Wenger.

"At the moment if I want to continue to work, I think I have to move out of the country, because my gut feeling at the moment is that I would feel I would betray my club by staying in England. People might feel that I've betrayed what I've built here.

"That is the problem I face at the moment. My club is here, my heart is here and will be forever. As I said in my speech on the pitch after the Burnley game, I'm a fan above all."
