The former Arsenal finally reveals he regrets not leaving Arsenal earlier than 2018 after his last few years at the club ended with issues with him and the board, deteriorating relationship with fans and below par results.
The 72 year old admit he was too attached the club and identified himself with the club in a new documentary.
‘I identified myself completely with the club – that was the mistake I made,’ said Wenger, as per the Telegraph.
‘My fatal flaw is I love too much where I am… where I was. I regret it. I should have gone somewhere else. Sometimes I wonder – was something broken after that Invincible season?’ said Wenger.
2007 was a decisive point. It was the first time I could feel there were tensions inside the board. I was torn between being loyal to the club and being loyal to David [Dein]. I still today wonder if I did the right thing because life was never exactly the same after. I thought, “I have now to go to the end of this project”. I could have gone to the French national team. The English national team twice or three times even. I could have gone twice to Real Madrid. I could have gone to Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, even Man United.’
Arsene Wenger is the most decorated manager at Arsenal, during his 22 years stint at the club he won the league 3 times with a memorable invincible campaign and seven Fa cup titles
