Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has insisted that replacing him with a new man, does not guarantee success for the club.
The 67-year-old’s future at the Emirates is up in the air, with reports this week claiming he is set to end his 21-year stay at the club.
Wenger himself has confirmed he will still be in football management, whether at Arsenal or somewhere else.
Speaking further during his Friday press conference, the Frenchman said: “Even if I go, Arsenal will not win every single game in the future, that is part of it, you have to accept that as much as it hurts to lose games.
“If you look at the history of Arsenal, Arsenal had less Champions League games when I arrived than I had in my career already, and since then we have done a few, so I hope in the future we can win this trophy, or Arsenal can win this trophy.
“But it is not like I arrived when Arsenal had already won the European Cup five times – they had never won the European Cup. They played maybe 10 games in the history of the club so you have to take some perspective on some of the demands.
“In the last 20 years in Europe only three clubs have managed to play every year in the Champions League. Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and nobody else. That means if everything is not perfect, not all is wrong. We have to accept that.
“It will be difficult this year because it is a fight at the top level where we have to focus on what is really important now, which is the quality of our performances and the quality of our games.”
