      Arsene Wenger has admitted that he would like to manage Arsenal for another four years or more.

      The 67-year-old has already said this season will not be his last in football management, whether it is at the Emirates or somewhere else.

      When asked if he could follow in the footsteps of Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after 26 years as Manchester United boss, Wenger replied: “Ferguson has some other interests in life and he was older than I am today. He was four years older, he retired at 71 and I’m 67.”

      Wenger who has been at Arsenal for over 20 years, said he could even stay in the game more than Ferguson did.

      “Maybe more, maybe less, I don’t know,” he said.

      “Everybody is different on that front and I do not want to take anything away from Ferguson, he was an absolutely unbelievable manager but he had enough, he had enough, and I’m not at that stage.”

      Wenger also insisted that the suggestion he could turn down a new deal with Arsenal was not a threat to the club’s board.

      “It is not a threat, not at all,” he said.

      “My preference is always to manage Arsenal and I have shown that. I am adult enough to analyse the situation.”
