Arsene Wenger Predicts European Super League Will Eventually Replace EPL

After 22 years in charge, it will be Arsene Wenger's final match as manager.

Wenger, 68, will leave the Emirates Stadium after a reign lasting nearly 22 years when the season ends away to Huddersfield on Sunday.

But he believes his most impressive achievement was to keep Arsenal competitive when the financial constraints hit home after the move to the 60,000-capacity stadium in 2006.

Wenger has tried to stay focused on football, but he conceded it hasn't always been easy amid all the nostalgia triggered by his impending departure.

"As a kid, I learnt about the country's special resistance, a non-violent resistance, and I was certainly impressed by that because the way we were educated was if someone wants to fight, you fight back".

"It's a bit of all of that (trophies and stadium)", Wenger said. "So we have to share the money but nobody is interested in you?' People want to watch quality". "I will say to the players, "Look we have to prepare for the future, and the best way to do that is to win your last game and go in a positive mind into next season", he said.

A domestic league will certainly play Tuesday and Wednesday. He also said that if the Premier League was to be more "attractive" this could mean fewer teams.

The Gunners lost 3-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley earlier this season. "I am fascinated by India, I don't know why, but I have never been in India", he said.

Whether Wenger will return to management elsewhere or settle for a director of football role with one of Europe's superpowers remains to be seen.

"They can be sure I will visit India".

"It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that".

His Gunners journey nearly at an end, Wenger returned to the pitch long after the final whistle and sought out the last remaining Arsenal fans.
