Wenger: I had offers to leave Arsenal

On the eve of his 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has revealed he had a number of chances to leave the Premier League club, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Wenger was appointed as Gunners manager in 1996 and reaches the four-figure mark on Saturday as Arsenal make the short journey to play London rivals Chelsea. Wenger has said that he is never happy with what he has achieved and confirmed he could have walked away from the club at a number of points of the past 17-and-a-half years.

“Satisfaction is not one of my greatest qualities,” Wenger added. “The only thing I can say what I have done is with full commitment and with full loyalty to this club.

“This club has given me a chance but as well at an important period of the lifespan of this club, I have shown loyalty and have turned many things down, and accepted to work with restricted potential, knowing that I had to stay at the top of the game.”

The Telegraph notes that three of the jobs Wenger has rejected are roles at Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and the England national team.

Only Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Matt Busby and Dario Gradi have reached the milestone of 1,000 games in charge of the same club.
