The erstwhile Gunners’ goalkeeper made the call during an interview on Thursday in Manchester, where he was inducted in the National Football Museum’s ‘Hall of Fame’.

On his part, Wenger has won nine major trophies with the Gunners and celebrated 20 years at the club on September 30.

His contract expires at the end of the season and discussions are yet to take place about him staying on.
