Arsene Wenger has claimed that he will have no involvement in the decisions surrounding his eventual successor at Arsenal.

The Gunners boss ended lengthy speculation surrounding his future at the club by signing a new two-year deal in the summer.

Wenger – now in his 22nd season with Arsenal – has been tipped to move into the boardroom when he retires, and would have a big input on who would replace him.

However, he insists that this is not the case, and the decision would be down to the board as they move into a new era.

“I don’t know who will replace me at Arsenal,” he told beIN Sports.

“When you are the manager of a club you have to work like you are there forever because it demands total commitment.

“I believe that every football club works when everybody is doing their own job well.

“My job is to prepare the team for the next game and be responsible for the technical policy for Arsenal.

“The job of my board is to choose the next manager.

“I don’t want to do the job of the board.”
