Arsene Wenger has defended the legacy he has crafted at Arsenal.

As speculation surrounding his future at the club intensifies.

Arsene Wenger defends his legacy with ArsenalA midweek 5-1 thumping at the hands of Bayern Munich further incensed supporters following a string of disappointing results, with widespread calls for the Frenchman’s 20 year career at the Gunners to come to an end.

However, Wenger says that those in charge should think carefully about any decisions, warning that it is impossible to achieve perfection.

“I think what is important is that the club makes the right decisions for the future,” he told the media.

“I do not work here for 20 years to not care about this club, because I’ve had many opportunities to go somewhere else during this period.”

“No matter what happens I will manage next season, is it here or somewhere else? Even if I go Arsenal may not win every single game in the future, that’s part of it, you have to accept that, as much as it hurts to lose games.”

“We have to focus on what really is important now, it’s the quality of our performances and the quality of our games.

While Thursday morning’s result all but ended Arsenal’s hopes of progressing in the European competition, the manager believes that turning the club into a mainstay of the Champions League is a feat not to be undervalued.

“As long as you do not win absolutely everything there is always something wrong, you have to accept that,” said Wenger.

“On the other hand, in the last 20 years in Europe only three clubs manage to play every year in the Champions League and it’s Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and nobody else.”

“Arsenal had less Champions League games when I arrived than I had in my career already. It’s not like before I arrived Arsenal has won five times the European Cup – they never won it – they played maybe 10 games in the whole history of the club.”
