How Arsene Wenger almost hurt Arsenal


Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he almost hurt the club in 2007 by dumping the job as he was unhappy with one of the decisions made at that time.

The legendary Frech manager revealed that he almost dumped the North London outfit in 2007 when his close pal, David Dein was sacked by the club because he felt torn and it was almost unbearable for him.

He revealed that he held a similar discussion with David Dein but he was told to stay at the club as they were very close and were loyal to each other.

Explaining that the decision of the club to sack David Dein was a result of the Emirates Stadium that was being built but it was a difficult reality to bear with.

Arsene Wenger insists that his leaving Arsenal would have hurt the club badly because he was highly needed at that time to help the team as he was also attracting interests from Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain.

However, the legendary French boss retired at the Emirates Stadium in 2018 to be the most successful manager in the Gunners history after a 20-year reign, winning the Premier League and the FA Cup titles.
