Arsene Wenger confirms he could be in charge of Arsenal until at least 2021


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to stay in charge for at least five more years.

The Frenchman will celebrate his 20th anniversary of being Arsenal manager tomorrow, hoping to do it in style when the Gunners face Burnley on Sunday.

And he says he's not ruling out the possibility of staying until 2021 to celebrate 25 years at the club.

"I don't know [if I'll get to 25 years]," Wenger said.

"I think I have one quality which is a passion for the game, and another quality is that I always have the desire to be better tomorrow than I was yesterday. If I look back, the way I manage today is not the same as it was five, 10, or 20 years ago. How long can I do? I don't know.

"I rule nothing out because I want to work and I want to do well. I accept that it can finish tomorrow as well. It's a love story and you always expect a love story to last forever, but it can always stop suddenly.

"What will influence me the most is the fact that I feel I do well and can move this team forward."

"The world wants always to see new faces, new views and the news is new faces, but I think stability is very important as well in the companies and the values, because people carry the values through the generations.

"It's not always necessarily the manager, but for me, a big club is first about values and its values are its identity. The privilege I have to carry these values is of course very important but very unusual as well in the modern world.

"If you look at the numbers it is quite worrying, because the average [job-life] expectancy of a manager in England is 18 months. That is not very promising."
