Arsene Wenger Admits He Is Scared.


Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has admitted that the thought of him ever leaving the game of football makes him panic.

The Frenchman who is drawing close to his 20th year at Arsenal and his 66th birthday stated that he now wonders how life after retirement will look like. According to him, he is not so enthusiastic about that as he is concerned on focusing on his job.

“Retirement? Yes, it crosses my mind sometimes but for no longer than five seconds because I panic a little bit,” said Wenger with a smile.

“When we played at Man United, he (Ferguson) came to meet me after the game. I said: ‘Come on, you don’t miss it?’ He says: ‘No.’ He had enough. He goes to every game. But he has (race) horses. I have no horses.

“Enthusiasm? That is not a problem, honestly. I am more committed than ever for that. I just think the number of times you have done it doesn’t count. It is how much you love what you do that counts.”

“And the love of what you do is not necessarily diminished by the number of times you’ve done it.

“Football is new, every day. That’s a big quality. It makes you question. Because with every defeat people say, ‘What is this guy doing?’

“Every three days, you are questioned – you have an exam every three days. You have no way to look back, you have to prepare the next exam and come out of it with success. So it always demands 100 per cent commitment.”
