Wenger: ‘I don’t want to stop my career’

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he will look to continue in a management role beyond the end of the current campaign, even if that is at a different club.

The 66-year-old tactician will see his contract expire at the end of the current campaign, and has given no indication as yet if he will pen a contract extension.

However, despite spending close to 20 years at the London club, Wenger says he is not yet ready to call it a day.

"I like to do what I do. Will I do something else one day? I don't know. But I'm not at the end of my knowledge or desire to do more and become better," Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

"The only thing that drives me on is I want to be a better manager [tomorrow] than I am today. As long as I have that, I don't want to stop my career.

"Even if I feel I don't do well [at Arsenal] I will manage somewhere else maybe. The disadvantage when you're getting older is that everyone asks you always, when will you stop? I don't know. I just try to do well and enjoy what I do."

Wenger has hinted at wanting to extend his stay at the Emirates beyond the end of the current campaign, but admits that is very much dependant on whether the club's hierarchy believe he is steering the club in the right direction. 

"What will decide whether I continue or not is whether I feel people want me to be there, that my club wants me to be there and my conscience that I've done well," he explained.

"That will be a decisive factor, 'Have I done well? Have we achieved what I want to achieve with this team?' That will be at stake."
