'It is inevitable' - Arsene Wenger predicts European super league, death of EPL

'It is inevitable' - Arsene Wenger predicts European super league, death of EPL

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his successor to show the same "honesty, loyalty and commitment" to the club as he has displayed throughout his career, Skysports reports.

Even the most optimistic Arsenal fan knows Champions League qualification is the only realistic goal for the next couple of seasons as the new manager works out how to fix the glaring tactical flaws of the late Wenger years, replace ageing stalwarts, and integrate youth players more successfully.

"Give your best and respect the values of the club", said Wenger. "Not the most glamorous maybe, but the most hard".

Wenger says his successor can not be afraid to bring fresh ideas to Arsenal, who have missed out on Champions League qualification in each of the past two seasons.

Wenger has signed his past two Arsenal contracts amid supporter unrest over his continued leadership - but on both occasions the deal has not been agreed until the end of the campaign.

The outgoing Arsenal boss feels Europe's elite clubs will fight for the introduction of a continental, weekend league to curtail the success of the English top flight.

"Big mistake": Heads are rolling at AT&T over payments to Michael Cohen
The company's lobbying operation will now report to AT&T General Counsel David McAtee, Stephenson said. The payments are now under scrutiny in part because Cohen is under federal investigation.

He won three Premier League titles and also three times Premier League Manager of the Year.

Arsenal had a great chance to kill off the tie in the first leg but were held to a 1-1 draw despite a one-man advantage, then lost 1-0 in Madrid.

On the match he would change: It's always the last one - not Leicester because there was nothing at stake - but Atletico Madrid. "As a professional, a person and the way he approached and also for the club and especially for football and I think everybody in football should thank him for everything he did".

"There's a contrast there because if you look at the audiences of the Champions League it is not fantastic". Despite his final season fizzling out into the worst of reign, Wenger remained in high spirits in his final prematch new conference, making jokes and posing for a photo with the assembled journalists after. "I must say the financial power of the championship has gone up", the 68-year-old added.

"I'm very passionate and at a very young age, I realised that if I wanted to survive in this job, I had to get control of my emotions or I wouldn't survive", he said. "I saw everyone one of them when they were [small], now they are massive", he said.
