Wenger fires Arsenal warning at Pepe

Wenger has been linked with a move back to management, but he revealed on Monday night that his previous links to Arsenal have stopped him from accepting a job in the Premier League.

"I chose to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal".

The 69-year-old, who spent 22 years with the North London club, was praised by the likes of Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas throughout the evening.

"He's not yet completely adapted and you have to give him some time. I can't stop working", said Wenger. "Then the pressure is really there and I think to come out of that period in a very healthy situation was a little bit of a miracle".

"I educated as a coach at the age of 25 and I never changed... moved out of my job, so for me to move out of this job is really hard".

The £350k-a-week German World Cup victor has been axed out of Unai Emery's last three matchday squads with the Gunners boss admitting other players "deserve it more". What you have done for me, what you have done for Arsenal Football Club and the Premier League is second to none.

'There's also my teammates, who are a expansive portion of that, but he's genuinely, genuinely made me growth since I arrived at Arsenal'. "After that, I think the most important thing is to support the team, the club and win games".

"You have got youngsters that deserve an opportunity probably more than him at the moment".

'I know he trusts me plenty because I've started the total games within the Premier League since the initiate of the season.

"And I think sometimes he could see in me that I was down or lacking confidence, and he always just said: 'Believe in yourself.' And I felt he believed in me". Liverpool are too far ahead for everybody else.
