Arsenal star Alex Iwobi emotional after Arsene Wenger's last game

Departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he believes his next job - if he takes one - will be away from England for fear of betraying the London club.

The 38-year-old is now an assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City - where he has been since 2016, when he retired from playing whilst in Arsenal colours.

The outgoing Arsenal boss held a powerful position at the club hat has been diluted in the a year ago, with Raul Sanllehi installed as the club's Sporting Director and Sven Mislintat assuming the position of head of recruitment as Arsenal chiefs are keen to step away from having one manager in complete control of the club at all level.

It is still uncertain who will be given the responsibility of taking Arsenal forward following the Frenchman's near 22-year reign at the club.

If reports from Sky Sports is anything to go by, Mikel Arteta is now the favourite to become the next Arsenal manager.

And the 68-year-old was overcome with emotion before and after Arsenal's last game of the Premier League campaign. 'This is football and sometimes you never know.

Wenger insists he remains unsure what his next move will be and said he would steer clear of any reunion with a club he has managed for over two decades.

"People are so nice since I said that". "With the results we won three Premier League titles, played 49 games unbeaten and I'm very proud to have won seven FA Cups too". "It will be hard to adjust of course but I will have to deal with that".

Wenger was said to be among the top football managers that discovered the talent of Cristiano Ronaldo while he was playing in Portugal.

Wenger himself arrived from Japanese club Nagoya Grampus Eight (stop me if you've heard this story before).

It's a fearless, new, exciting and uncertain world for Arsenal and Arsenal fans, but after complaints about all the old familiar failings, isn't that exactly what people wanted?
