Wenger: European Super League is "inevitable"

After managing the best club in Italy, Allegri wants to win the Premier League in England with a club that can deliver him quick success.

As such, Wenger has aimed one last cheeky dig at Spurs ahead of his final match, claiming the cost of building a new stadium could impede their transfer dealings.

Arsene Wenger takes charge of his final game as Arsenal manager at Huddersfield tomorrow, with the home side organising an ovation in the 22nd minute in recognition of the Frenchman's 22 years at the helm.

It was Leicester's first league win against Arsenal since 1994 and therefore Wenger's first defeat to the Foxes in his 22 years at the Gunners. Despite his final season fizzling out into the worst of reign, Wenger remained in high spirits in his final prematch new conference, making jokes and posing for a photo with the assembled journalists after. "I don't know, honestly", Wenger told reporters on Thursday.

"It's a bit odd for me [that it's his last news conference]". If somebody deserved to celebrate like they have never done before, then it was this football club. At the moment I don't at all, because I'm sitting in front of you. "Wenger held out his hand to give myself and all the other mascots a high-five and an enormous sense of pride rushed through me".

The difference is that this year we have a younger team, a more inexperienced team, so maybe the expectation is not so big. It will be a new experience for everyone because the transfer window is going to close before the start of the season.

Iran hopes the European Union will pass laws to protect European firms from any potential US sanctions. Iran's rhetoric & aggressive regional actions were the background to a flawed deal.

And Wenger believes addressing the team's issues on the road could pave the way for a title challenge under his successor.

"JOHANNESBURG - 'What a way to sum up the footballing philosophy of Arsene Wenger", boomed commentator Martin Tyler as Tony Adams's goal against Everton in the last match of the season, 20-years-ago now, was being replayed. "Wherever that takes me, is fine by me", he said. "It is a pleasant surprise".

"Because there was more questioning as well, you do not feel the same adhesion to what you do and when you stay here for such a long period you question yourself 'is it time now to go or not??". Every day is not a pleasure.

"They will say 'people want to watch quality, so why should we have to share the money?'" You should always try to do it, and after what we have done, I am pretty sure that this is possible.
