Arsene Wenger: I should have left Arsenal for another club

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to return to the football dugout for the first time since leaving Arsenal in 2018.

Arsene Wenger has again stated he stayed with Arsenal too long.

The Frenchman is the subject of a new documentary titled Arsene Wenger: Invincible which is released in cinemas this week and focuses on his 22-year stint with the north London club.

The 72-year-old has admitted that he was wrong to stay at the club for as long as he did.

“I identified myself completely with the club – that was the mistake I made,” said Wenger. “My fatal flaw is I love too much where I am… where I was. I regret it. I should have gone somewhere else.”

Attempting to pinpoint where his time in north London took a turn, Wenger raised the departure of David Dein from the Arsenal board in 2007.
