Wenger dreading retirement

Arsene Wenger is not looking forward to the day when he retires from football.

Wenger is the longest-serving manager currently in the Premier League and he will mark 20 years at Arsenal in October.

With his contract due to expire at the end of the season, the Frenchman has yet to commit his future to Arsenal and he faces a big decision in the coming months.

While he is likely to remain in football, he admits he is scared of the day when he finally steps down from his position as Arsenal manager.

"It's been my life and, quite honestly, I'm scared of the day. Because the longer I wait, the more difficult it will be to lose the addiction," Wenger said, in a new book, Game Changers: Inside English Football.

"After Alex [Ferguson] retired and we played them over there he sent a message to me to come up and have a drink with him.

"I asked 'Do you miss it?' He said, 'Not at all'. I didn't understand that. It's an emptiness in your life, especially when you've lived your whole life waiting for the next game and trying to win it.

"Our pleasure comes from that - and our social attitude as well."
