Arsenal seek to name a new manager before World Cup


"You will not see him again before December certainly", quoted Wenger, as saying. I will work. What will I do? I personally have chose to manage a club. 'I will continue as long as I feel I want to.

This might be the last time Jamie Vardy and Riyahd Mahrez play for the club so I am expecting the team to put up a good performance to farewell two of the clubs best players. "I know that's not easy but, above all, I am like you, I am an Arsenal fan", Wenger said a post-match presentation on the Emirates turf.

Wenger said his farewell to Emirates stadium, which stands as a testament to his 22 years in north London on Sunday, his Arsenal side giving him the flawless farewell with a 5-0 thrashing of Burnley in the summer sun.

Fabregas went on to play more than 200 games for Arsenal, winning the FA Cup and being appointed captain in 2008 before returning to Barcelona three years later.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Wednesday's clash with Leicester City, Wenger said: "The club made a big investment, basically because the player was free as well - we would have to buy a player".

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil says he will recover in time from a back injury to be available for Germany for the World Cup.

"We have checked everybody today".

"I have a great relationship with the club and we are in sync, as has been demonstrated over the last four years", he told reporters. "It needs two or three additions and this team will compete for the championship next year".

But despite a sub-par season which will end without silverware or a Champions League spot next term, Wenger is insistent the group of players he has assembled does not need much work. "There's a good spirit, a good basis. We need to make it mathematically certain and real".

"It is hard to know what is a lot".
