Arsene Wenger has revealed he is determined to leave a good legacy behind for his successor to build on.
The boss’ contract expires at the end of the current campaign and there are doubts over his future with reports claiming this could be his last year at Arsenal.
The French man himself is undecided about his future and wants to wait until the last minute before making a decision.
Although he hasn’t given any indication that he would step down at the end of the season, reports claim he could leave if he doesn’t win the league title.
When asked what he would love for the club when he steps down, the boss revealed he would love to leave a strong legacy for his successor.
“My pride [would be] to see somebody come in and do better. At least he is in a position to do better, he said.
“It is important I think for the legacy.
“For me the club is also about identity and values.
“The values are carried here by the manager because I have stayed here for a long time.
“I hope that these values, which are respected all over the world, will continue because it is based on respect, humility, togetherness – and also that the club moves forward.”
Wenger recently celebrated his 20 years anniversary at our club and he has been fairly successful in his time here. The boss has won three league titles and six FA cups since he joined. That aside, he has helped us become financially buoyant despite the difficulty in moving from Highbury to the Emirates and we believe that the new manager will meet the best environment to take us to the next level when Wenger’s time is up.
The French man might not be remembered by the titles he won with us when he steps down but would definitely be remembered for the numerous amount of players he helped become top players and I believe that’s a good enough legacy.
