Arsene Wenger insists he has no arrangements to surrender up his managerial role at Arsenal, as he compares retirement to death.
The 67-year-old France international is under intense pressure at the Emirates Stadium to give up his role as fans are willing to see him leave at the end of the season.
Yet, the Frenchman plans to proceed in management, regardless of whether he stays at the Premier League club or not. “I won’t retire,” Wenger said.
Furthermore, in words like those once said by Legendary Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, he included: “Retiring is for young people. For old individuals, retirement is biting the dust.”

“Of course I’m as hungry as I was when I arrived. I carry a bit more pressure on my shoulders than 20 years ago but the hunger is exactly the same,” he said.
“When you see what the club was then and what it is today… when I arrived there were 70 people working for the club, we are 700 today. One share was £400, it’s £18,000 today. And I’ll tell you straight away, I don’t have any shares.”
