Arsene Wenger reveals how close he came to quitting Arsenal this summer


Arsenal have endured a nightmare start to the Premier League season after losing two of their first three games.

The Gunners scraped past Leicester 4-3 in the season opener before falling to a 1-0 defeat at Stoke.

That was followed up by a 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool, meaning Arsene Wenger’s future is once again under scrutiny despite signing a new two-year deal earlier this summer.

It was widely expected that he would leave the hot seat after 21 years once Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League and finished below rivals Tottenham for the first time in his reign.

In an interview with Telefoot, the Frenchman has admitted he did consider leaving north London before putting pen to paper on an extension, citing personal reasons.

“Yes, I hesitated to extend for personal reasons,” he said.

“I’ve been at Arsenal for 20 years, and I’m wondering if I should continue to lead the club. We went quite badly during the season.”

He also revealed that Paris Saint-Germain were interested in his availability.

The fact is that for all the ‘Wenger Out’ protests that are bound to engulf the Emirates this season, it’s difficult to imagine Wenger moving on in the near future.
