Wenger 'surprised' at job offers as he prepares for Arsenal farewell

ARSENE WENGER has called on Arsenal to appoint his successor as soon as possible - and revealed his surprise at the number of job offers he has had since it was announced he was leaving the club.

Asked what kind of role he would be interested in, he said: "That's what I have to decide".

But the Germany global says on Twitter, "It'll need some time but I'm sure I'll fully recover in time for the World Cup", next month in Russian Federation. "It was a sad day when I heard". You know I didn't miss a training session in 22 years, I never stayed in my office. "I like green grass and I like to walk on it every morning".

"That is something that I will miss".

The club plan for Wenger to be saluted after the final whistle of the Burnley clash, a match that takes on extra significance as victory for the visitors would see them pull level with sixth-placed Arsenal on 57 points.

On the one hand they looked a little lethargic, misplaced passes and didn't have their shooting boots on. They have been so long in the shadows of United and now they live in this city like they are the kings.

He has a long-standing relationship with PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi because of his work with broadcaster beIN SPORTS.

"At the moment I focus on doing my job well. I'm convinced, like I was always, that his future is here". "I brought him here and I love the player and the person". It becomes a bit [of] discrimination. I would invite you to really push to support the players and the staff who will remain behind me. "I think it will happen, yes".

"He looks good, prepares well, runs well, but medically it is too much of a risk to rush him back", Wenger added.

Wenger will leave after nearly 22 years at the helm and was handed an emotional tribute from the club following Sunday's 5-0 thrashing of Burnley, his final game in charge at the Emirates.

"He is aware because he's on social networks, but you can't always master what people say, you can only master your own attitude", he said.
