- Arsene Wenger never stopped worrying about Arsenal's progress despite quitting the club 2 years ago
- The 70-year-old is praying the club rediscovers its culture under Mikel Arteta
- Wenger also showers encomiums on Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after helping the Reds achieve so much
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he is still worried about the club after about two years he stepped down as their head coach.
The Frenchman was said to have mutually parted ways with the Gunners at the end of the 2017-18 season, with Unai Emery taking over from him.
He may not have won many titles during his 22-year reign at the Emirates Stadium, he set a record that no manager has been able to break in the Premier League.
Not even legendary Sir Alex Ferguson or Jose 'Special-One' Mourinho nears the invincible record by the 70-year-old.

The French-born tactician remains the only manager to have won the EPL without losing a single match all through the season (2003-04).
However, the coach who has not taken up any managerial job since May 2018 said he still worries about them, adding that he hopes his former midfielder can help them rediscover their style.
He told talkSPORT: “I worry about the club still a lot and I watch all of the games.
“I believe there is a culture in the way to play football at Arsenal that I want to be respected, and I hope Mikel can get that back. “I’m very proud and happy to contribute a little bit to improve things.
“My heart is still with the club. I think a lot of that period. Twenty-two years at one club is unusual. I’m proud.
“At the end of the day when you look back, you don’t think about what you won or lost so much but I’m proud for having the attitude just to serve the club while I was there.
“I have more satisfaction looking back too at the Emirates that we built all that without a penny from anybody. “And today the club can take off more and be more successful.”
Wenger also heaped praises on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp owing to his impressive contributions to the club in the last few years.
The Reds are 25 points clear of defending champions Manchester City on the log with just nine matches left to play for the season.
He insisted waiting for about three decades and then winning it in style for them is highly commendable of the German boss.
He added: “Jurgen [Klopp] has done extremely well because that club has waited 30 years for this title.
“And when you think they have such a massive difference [points gap] to the second team, Manchester City, as well – 25 points, it’s absolutely massive.
“No matter what England will decide, Liverpool are champions in everyone’s head, I think.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Cesc Fabregas has shunned Pep Guardiola from the list of his best-ever managers despite winning four titles under the Spaniard at Barcelona.
The 32-year-old midfielder named his former Premier League managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho as his preferred choice.
Daily Star reports that the attacker wasn't satisfied with the way Pep deployed him at Camp Nou - hence, the reason his countryman failed to make the shortlist.
