It was not my decision to leave Arsenal – Wenger finally opens up

Legendary Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has hinted that he was sacked by the club in May 2018. Wenger, in his new documentary, said “it was not really” his decision to step down after 22 years in charge. The Frenchman also described his Arsenal exit as “a funeral”. During his stint with the Gunners, Wenger won three league titles and seven FA Cups, including league and cup doubles in both 1998 and 2002. Wenger also oversaw the ‘Invincibles’ season back in 2004, when Arsenal went the entire Premier League season without defeat. But the final years of his reign were marred by fan protest after some disappointing campaigns. A few days after announcing he was stepping down, Wenger hinted that the call was “not really” his decision. And it now appears he could be about to ...

Lampard’s first managerial job was in the Championship with Derby County. He led the Rams to the play-off final in his only season there, before he returned to Chelsea as manager in 2019. “I’m not rushing into anything but if the opportunity arises and it’s the right one then I want to work again. “I love working in management more than I thought I would. “I would take a view on going into the Championship.

"There were already a lot of changes in December, something that has not been done in years, but it tells us where we were.
