Former Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has finally revealed why he never visited the club after 22 years as their manager.
Wenger spent 22 years at Arsenal, leading them to many successful seasons and resigned in 2018 majorly due to pressure from fans.
Speaking with The Sun, Wenger reiterated his desire to stay away from the Emirates, adding that his job at FIFA does not afford him the luxury of time.
The former Monaco boss also said his presence at Arsenal could cause problems and could disturb the work already going on there.
“I haven’t been there since 2018,” said Wenger.
“After 22 years as manager, maybe I arrived at the end of the road and people wanted a change.
“The club had chosen a different direction and I can understand that completely.
“Sometimes, you need to have a completely new staff and my presence there could have been a problem
“So I stayed away completely to give the club the chance to rebuild a new connection with a new manager.
“That’s why I never talked about Arsenal and never came back to the Emirates because I didn’t want to be a presence that is maybe not good for the club.
“But I still feel that my life is definitely linked with Arsenal, so now I support them from my TV and I am also very busy travelling the world for Fifa.”
