EPL: It was not my decision to leave Arsenal – Wenger finally opens up


Legendary Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has hinted that he was sacked by the club in May 2018.

Wenger, in his new documentary, said “it was not really” his decision to step down after 22 years in charge.

The Frenchman also described his Arsenal exit as “a funeral”.

During his stint with the Gunners, Wenger won three league titles and seven FA Cups, including league and cup doubles in both 1998 and 2002.

Wenger also oversaw the ‘Invincibles’ season back in 2004, when Arsenal went the entire Premier League season without defeat.

But the final years of his reign were marred by fan protest after some disappointing campaigns.

A few days after announcing he was stepping down, Wenger hinted that the call was “not really” his decision. And it now appears he could be about to set the record straight.

Speaking ahead of the launch of his new documentary, Arsène Wenger: Invincible, Wenger said: “You realise that the end of something is like a funeral.”

Also in the trailer, former Gunners forward Dennis Bergkamp gave an insight into Wenger’s struggles following the decision, with the Dutch ace, saying: “It would have been easier if he had made the decision.”
