Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has admitted that he stayed at the North London outfit for too long.
He described his two-decade stay as the biggest mistake of his career.
Wenger left the club after 22 years and was replaced by Unai Emery, having failed to finish inside the top four for two consecutive seasons as the club’s fans turned against him.
The Frenchman has now admitted he probably overstayed his welcome but was obsessed with trying to deliver the title.
Asked what the biggest mistake of his career was in an interview on French radio station, RTL, he said, “Perhaps staying at the same club for 22 years.
“I’m someone who likes to move around a lot, but I also like a challenge. I’ve been a prisoner of my own challenge at times.”
He added, “I’ve had the opportunity numerous times to be France manager. I’m not sure if it was before or after (Raymond) Domenech. Maybe both.
“I’ve always been more interested in the day-to-day aspect of management. I find it much more stimulating.
“It is a question I’ve been asking myself; if I should become a national team manager. A national team manager takes charge of ten games per year. In a club, you take charge of 60.”
