Arsene Wenger: I think I am more committed than ever


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says he is looking forward to the challenge of a new campaign as he enters his 20th season in charge of the club.

The Gunners have a tricky start to the new season as they face Chelsea, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Liverpool and Newcastle United in August.

But the Frenchman says he is more committed than ever ahead of the new season.

"I have a lot of experience and that helps to anticipate what you will face," he told the club's official website.

"You have to have a good assessment of who you are and you are not influenced too much by what people say about you. One side is sometimes too positive and the other is sometimes too negative.

"I think I am more committed than ever. I just think that the number of times you have done [something] doesn't count, it's how much you love what you do that counts.

"What you do does not necessarily diminish the love of what you do by the number of times you have done it.

"Football is new every day. That's a big quality that makes you question yourself because after every defeat, people say, 'What on earth is this guy doing?' Every three days you are questioned and that is an exam that you take.

"You have no way to look back because you have to prepare for the next exam and then come out of it with success.

"It always demands 100 per cent commitment."
