Arsene Wenger has revealed he will go on managing as long as he has the desire and drive to be 'better tomorrow than I am today', however Le Boss doesn't think that will stretch past a further ten years.
Wenger, who is now 57, rather morbidly points out that at his age, he has already ready lived for more time than he has left, and reveals his passion for coaching.
"This is a profession where you have to possess physical strength and animal force to show your will to win. But all that can go with a fall in testosterone and with, arthritis and old age. In our fifties we all realise we have less time left than we have already lived.' said the gaffer.
"I think that the club can have a future for 10 years, not me. I have to accept the idea that within 10 years I will be 67.'
"When that time arrives we ask ourselves how can we use the time we have left.'
"Do we carry on as always without asking where it will take us, or take a new outlook on life knowing that time is moving on?
"There are people who can coach for 40 years. And then there are coaches like Bobby Robson or Trapattoni who will die with the same desire to be on the bench.'
"The true driving force for my life is the idea that tomorrow I will be better than today. As soon as I lose this, I will be dead in my profession and my aspirations."
So it is with that, that I pray the force remains with Monsieur Wenger for many many years.
