The club are keen to appoint Wenger's successor before the start of the World Cup, meaning there's just a three-week gap between the end of the season and the first game in Russian Federation.

Arsène Wenger has predicted that there will soon be a European super league played at weekends, consigning domestic football to midweek and potentially leading to fewer teams in the Premier League. Wenger, though, envisages that may change.

"When you see a team like this, and you touched on how there is no backbone there, well where are you going to get that backbone from?" I have complaints about the red card as well but I think we dealt well with the situation.

The likes of Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri, Carlo Ancelotti, Liverpool assistant Zeljko Buvac, Luis Enrique, Joachim Low, Patrick Vieira, Mikel Arteta, Thierry Henry, Leonardo Jardim and Julian Nagelsmann have emerged as candidates to succeed the three-time Premier League victor.

While the Champions League has benefited competitors from all over Europe, the Premier League has been able to generate more money and interest than its continental rivals, leaving some of Europe's biggest clubs keen to alter the situation.

Wenger takes charge of Arsenal for the final time on Sunday, as Arsenal travel to Huddersfield on the last day of the Premier League season.

"You see on Sunday when you speak about the goodbye I had with the fans is that some of the fans won't agree always with my decisions but I think they respected one thing - that I was honest, loyal and committed to the values of the club".

Arsene Wenger picked out a nine-year period of relatively little success on the pitch when asked for his Arsenal highlight at his final pre-match news conference on Thursday.

Tipsters are nearly certainly looking towards an Arsenal win, any other result would be a major let down for those turning up to say goodbye to Arsene Wenger - to finish with two defeats would not be in the script at all.

"I personally feel I did my best job in that period. Not the most glamorous, maybe, but the most hard".
