Wenger: I’m still learning
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that he is still learning from management despite being on the verge of his 1,000th game as Gunners boss, according to Sky Sports.
Appointed in the 1996, the Frenchman has spoke out of his desire for the game ahead of his landmark match against Chelsea on Saturday.
"You learn from every game," said Wenger.
"You learn more from the lost games than the games won.
"Certainly because you go into deeper analysis, you question yourself more, you question the players more and you learn basically the most from the higher the level goes up, the more you see the limitations of your team and your players.
"You learn the most in the biggest games when the pressure is there, when the talent is against you and when the pace of the game is at the top, top level. This is where you learn."
Although his side is verging on a nine-year trophy drought, the 64-year-old can still claim the domestic double of the Premier League and FA Cup and is adamant his focus has always been on the next game at hand.
"It makes you feel 'where did the time go?'. It looks to me like I started yesterday, I can't believe it is such a long time," Wenger added.
"Why? Because you're always focused on looking forward to the next game and when you look back you think 'I made quite a distance there'.
"Despite that, your only interest is the next game, our drug is the next game, the hope for the next game, the desire to win the next one. You go step by step and finally when you look back it's a long time.
"I would just like to say for me it's an honour to manage a club of this dimension for such a long time, and I would like to thank everybody who is involved in the club for giving me such a confidence for such a long time."
