Arsène Wenger is confident he can build another title-winning team - but admits he has not got the time he once had.

The Frenchman celebrated 17 years in charge of Arsenal earlier this month, and his side are currently two points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Wenger is pleased with the sparkling football his team is playing, but says he is focusing on the day-to-day challenge, rather than anything more long-term.

For me, happiness in life is a succession of happy moments. Afterwards you’re judged on your global achievements, but life is not like that day to day

“I can build another new team, but I haven’t got 17 years that’s for sure,” he said. “I can build another team because in 17 years I had a few teams, but at the minute I’m looking at the short-term. I will make a decision about the little-bit-longer term later.

“We have always had teams who played good football, but you can play very well for 37 championship games and lose the decisive 38th game. You will then forget the 37 games you played well.

“For me, happiness in life is a succession of happy moments. Afterwards you’re judged on your global achievements, but life is not like that day to day.

“You work every day because you have happy moments. After that people will say, ‘you were a good or bad journalist,’ I don’t know. But what’s important in your life is that you have happy moments. And for me the games are a succession of possible happy moments.

“Of course afterwards you want people to look back and say ‘that was a fantastic season’ but that will be decided in May. Before that let’s experience some quality.”
