Tiger Punch, October 12th Arsenal legend Wenger recently accepted an interview with The Guardian. He talked about the Gunners' prospects this season, reviewed the 2006 Champions League final, and talked about his views on the club's arch-rival Tottenham.
"I think Arsenal is surrounded by a very good team spirit. They have a good chance to play. I also believe that it is not difficult to improve in the points scored last season. Arsenal can enter. Top four, and if you can get a higher ranking, why not?"
"The Gunners may give me a surprise this year. The team has done a good job signing, strengthened the defense, while retaining the main players. I bought Aubameyang in the last year of Arsenal and now the team has retained him . They are now comprehensive and have no obvious weaknesses."
Wenger said: "There is no hostility, but there is competition."
"At Arsenal, beating Tottenham is to win the respect of the club. The competition is important, as long as it is not overly crazy. When you play against Tottenham, everyone will be more nervous at the beginning than usual."
When asked what adjustments would be made if we go back now, Wenger said: "I have asked myself this question many times. Maybe I will leave two central defenders behind when we are 1-2 behind in the last 13 minutes. field.
"We entered the final and we did not concede a goal against those teams in the knockout stage. When you have 10 people to challenge, you know it will be difficult to play in the last 20 minutes, especially against a team like Barcelona. We have two chances. Scored the second goal, but we were not sure."
"So it feels very complicated. Every failure comes to my mind. What you want to think about is not what you should do, but what you can do."
Wenger said: "The England team has asked me many times to coach. I refused, for two reasons."
"First of all, I think it's better to be an Englishman (with England). Second, because I am very happy at Arsenal. I am in a club and do what I like to do. Bayern, Juventus, Barcelona...many clubs are looking for Live me. And today, I am proud of my life."
"I played for Arsenal for a long time to give back to this stadium. Not only to win the championship, but more importantly, to guide the club through a very sensitive period and then to the end. This is what I did, Someone later said that I stayed too long. Maybe, but I don’t think so."
