Alexis Sanchez Exiting In A Furore Of Fire

Arsene Wenger is once again under pressure to end Arsenal's Champions League last-16 misery as the Gunners travel to bogey team Bayern Munich in Wednesday's first leg. "Ferguson has some other interests in life and he was older [when he retired] than I am today", said Wenger.

Truth be told, the rumblings of discontent and frustration amongst Gunners' fans and ex-players has been growing for a number of years and even the most fervent supporters of Wenger are rapidly dwindling.

"What I hear in the last 10 days, about how people, ex-players, journalists, treat Arsene Wenger is unacceptable", Guardiola said in his press conference after City's FA Cup fifth-round draw with Huddersfield Town. Wenger revealed he will make his decision regarding his future in March or April, but with Arsenal struggling to get out of fourth gear, maybe it's time for a new name to take the team into overdrive.

The prospect of Paul Doswell "vaping" beside Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is one that still hasn't sunk in for the Sutton United manager's son.

"It is not a threat, not at all", he said.

The Spaniard is reportedly set to leave the Premier League club at the end of the season after limited chances under Wenger.

"I take my decisions and you analyse them after, I have to take the decision before".

"Sanchez joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2014 and has lifted the FA Cup on one occasion since his move to England - during which time he also won back-to-back Copa America titles with Chile".

Wenger seems to get questioned every week about whether he is thinking of standing down or retiring, but Le Prof seems to have made it unequivocally clear that he is not exhausted of his job, and has no intention of standing down in the near future. "So whether you are a young manager or an old manager, every single defeat hurts".

"I will never go down there [to manage] because it is too hard". Many top-class managers are being linked with the Arsenal job, including Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri and his AS Monaco counterpart Jardim.

A player when I managed for the first time at 33 or 34 said that after our first defeat I threw up.

"The fight doesn't get higher".
