Arsene Wenger reveals his biggest Arsenal regret after 22 years in charge

Arsene Wenger has revealed his biggest regret at Arsenal as he prepares to stand down at the end of the season after 22 years in charge.

The Gunners boss announced his intentions to cut his contract short and hand over the reins to someone new for the start of the 2018/19 campaign last week.

Wenger has won three Premier League trophies during his time in charge of Arsenal, as well as seven FA Cups. He could also win the Europa League this season.

However, one trophy that eluded Wenger was the Champions League, which he came very close to winning back in 2006. And not adding the trophy to his cabinet is the one thing he wished he was able to do during his tenure.

"The [2006 final] was my biggest regret, yes," said the Arsenal boss.

"We have to be conscious of that as well, the history of the club has become very demanding but the longer history of the club is not that bright that you can say the club has won 10 European Cups in their history.

"In our job there’s only one thing that matters: the next game. That’s what I’m focused on. Atletico Madrid are a very strong team. If you look at the table, they are the second best team in Spain.

"That will demand total commitment on our side and a great discipline, because they have no real weak point.

"They are strong defensively, they are strong offensively, so we’ll need a complete performance."

Arsenal are in action on Thursday night in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid.
