He said: "Yes, it’s 20 years - I'm sorry. I would like to thank you for your consistent support and to apologise for every minute I make you suffer in these 20 years!"
The coach stressed: "But you don't look too bad for people who have suffered for 20 years. I am sorry for the boy who was born 20 years ago and only known one manager. I would reassure him that when he will be 40 he will know a few more. I have tried to serve for 20 years this club sincerely, with complete commitment, loyalty and of course competence and that was a very important part of my guidance."

He added: "I tried to respect what is important for this club, respect for people, humility and as well always try to develop the team and the club."
Wenger continued: "I believe the team has the commitment, togetherness, hunger, desire and unity. We have a good chance to compete for the Premier League."
He also noted: "Our challenge is to compete for everything starting tomorrow in the League Cup. Even if you see some new faces our desire is to qualify and fight for everything because I believe we have a squad that is more mature and better equipped to cope with all the challenges we have. That is the target and I am absolutely committed to fulfil and give my best so that we are successful until the end of the season."

And The Daily Telegraph reports that the FA will attempt to prise Arsene Wenger away from Arsenal at the end of the season and install him as the new England manager. In their turn Daily Star reports that Eddie Howe will be the new coach when Arsene Wenger leaves the club.
