Wenger sad not to have won the 2006 Champions League title

- Arsene Wenger has revealed that his biggest regret in charge of Arsenal is losing the 2006 Champions League final

- The Gunners scored first in the encounter in Paris, but were beaten 2-1 by Spanish side Barcelona

- Wenger will be leaving at the end of this season after 22 years in charge of the Gunners

Outgoing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed his biggest regret at the Premier League club as he prepares to leave the Gunners at the end of the season.

The Frenchman announced last week that he will be leaving the North London club at the end of the season after 22 years in charge at Arsenal.

Wenger has won three Premier League trophies during his time in charge of Arsenal as well as seven FA Cups.

But one trophy Arsene Wenger regretted not to have won was the 2006 Champions League title where Arsenal were beaten 2-1 in the final by Spanish giants Barcelona.

''The 2006 Champions League final against Barcelona was my biggest regret, yes.

"We have to be conscious of that as well, the history of the club has become very demanding but the longer history of the club is not that bright that you can say the club has won 10 European Cups in their history,'' Wenger said according to UK Mirror.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have the chance of winning the Europa League title this season, but they will first have to overcome Atletico Madrid in the semi final.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsene Wenger finally confirmed that he will be leaving the Gunners at the end of the season after 22 years in charge.

The Frenchman has been at the North London club since 1996 and has won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

His side's incredible undefeated season will remain one of the greatest achievements in Premier League history, while the Gunners managed to break Manchester United's dominance in the late 90s and early 2000s.
