I still have the desire to be a coach, yes,’ Wenger told Telefoot. ‘Do I still have to desire to throw myself into a crazy challenge? I don’t know. ‘It is a job that needs total commitment. I need to take a bit of a space which I have never done.

‘What will influence me? What is inside me. How much I miss being a coach. How I manage to live without this adrenaline which is part of being a coach and influencing a football match. To experience a beautiful game of football and share it with others after a the game the emotions. ‘It is not a devil – it is an angel.Football has allowed me to meet amazing people, who have offered their hand and who have helped me do what I have done.’

Emery was announced as Arsenal boss after an extensive interview process. Mikel Arteta had been the favourite to replace Wenger but the Arsenal board vetoed a move for the Spaniard and backed Emery’s greater experience.
