'I'm like a guy who always plays Russian Roulette'

Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has always been one of the most quotable men in football, and he was back at it again when he sat down with the written press on Wednesday.

The Arsenal manager was asked about whether he will have a period of reflection once he stands down at the end of the season, and his response did not disappoint.

"Yes, a little bit," he said. "I had no break for 35 years. In our job, you can look around, that doesn't exist. 

"I don't know now how addicted I am. I am a bit like a guy who plays Russian Roulette every week and suddenly has no gun any more. So, I will see how much I miss that gun.

"I leave myself a little bit open and [with the] freedom to decide what I want to do with my life.

"I wish that all goes well [for Arsenal next season]. You do not give 22 years of your life for something and you go away and want things to collapse. Not at my age. 

"Maybe when you have a big ego at 40 you think the world without you cannot live. At my age you understand that when you go, the world continues and you wish that it continues better. At least I think that the guy can work in a positive environment."
