Wenger reveals he turned down chance to replace Ferguson at Manchester United

Wenger reveals he turned down chance to replace Ferguson at Manchester United

But Ferguson changed his mind, eventually remaining in position until 2013, and Wenger says he has no regrets about staying put at Arsenal.

Although his storied rival would ultimately reverse his decision and spend another decade at Old Trafford, Wenger says he never really considered the option of leaving Arsenal for United.

"Hector Bellerin has gone from being one of the best right-backs in football to nearly now thinking he's not good enough to get in the Arsenal side". He declared quite emphatically before the start of the season that he would be focusing on the Premier League, thereby getting us ready for a much weakened Arsenal team being picked for the European games. You speak about Manchester United, and the evolution in the last 20 years would be very interesting.

"I always question myself. We have changed a lot", the Frenchman said. That is why I am still in the competition.

"More than people were happy with me, I was always happy here". Yes, of course Man Utd is attractive, but am I happy here?

It also allows states to inspect vessels on the high seas suspected of carrying items prohibited by the sanctions regime. More than 90,000 North Korean workers employed overseas bring the regime about a half billion dollars a year.

"It is too long to talk about that but I think it is quite an interesting subject that you know certainly as well as I do, but a lot has changed".

"He was my number one choice", wrote Edwards, adding, "Wenger did show a little bit of interest, enough to want to meet Peter Kenyon and me at his house in London to listen to what we had to say". The answer was "yes".

"When I arrived here we were 80 people, today we are 700".

I'm sure they will, but sometimes it feels with Arsenal recently like it's 50-50 - that they're going to support but also half be there to protest.

Arsenal have faced a wealth of criticism over the course of the summer transfer window and heading into the new season, where the Gunners lost two consecutive matches before the worldwide break.
