Arsene Wenger has his say on painful Arsenal exit

Arsene Wenger has opened up on his Arsenal exit.

The Frenchman, who can only be described as a legend at The Emirates, left the club over three years ago.

In his recent autobiography it’s made clear how difficult his Arsenal exit was, describing it as “very lonely, very painful”.

Wenger states (via The Telegraph):

“Arsenal will be in my heart forever but, yes, I focus on my next life now.”

“I gave the best years of my career to develop what I think is important – the stadium and pay it back and put the club in a position where it was capable of facing the future and had the potential to do well.”

“At the end of the day, above all, we won and what I am most proud about is putting the club in that position.”

In the days since Wenger, many fans have come to realise just how impressive his stint at the club was.

Wenger left the club off the back of his lowest two finishes in his time there.

Those finishes, 5th and 6th, have been followed by two 8th placed finishes just three years on.

Both Unai Emery and now Mikel Arteta are struggling to follow in the footsteps of Wenger.

He’s a legend at The Emirates and the fans are starting to see exactly what life is like without him.

A return to the Champions League looks a million miles away for the Gunners.

This has only further emphasised how impressive his time at the club was.
