Arsenal director Friar: There'd be no Emirates stadium without Wenger

Speaking ahead of his penultimate Arsenal match on Wednesday, Wenger also gave updates on Santi Cazorla and Laurent Koscielny, who have both suffered achilles tendon injuries. More than I expected.

The Germany global was heavily criticised in the wake of Arsenal's defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Europa League last week, with former Gunners defender Martin Keown claiming that the midfielder "was not fit to wear the shirt".

And it seems the initial worries were well founded, with Koscielny forced to undergo surgery earlier today to fix his achilles tendon.

However, the damage is worse than first feared and the France global will now miss at least six months of action, with his return expected to come in December.

"But then you see Manchester United and Arsenal play and it's like you are watching another sport - and Arsene has so much to do with it. It was always my wish and I think it will happen".

Juventus are virtually certain to win the Scudetto for the seventh season in a row - Napoli are six points back with two games to go - but speculation Allegri could leave has intensified.

"For sure I will be active - my brain demands work".

"I know that now the rivalry has changed a bit, with Man City doing well, but these are the games that any Man United player would love to be involved in now: against City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham".

Wenger will step down at the end of this season after nearly 22 years in charge of the club. I have huge experience in management.

Arsenal plays two Premier League matches this week. So overall I will work. We took examples, as we always tried to take examples from anybody who was improving. Every day I was out there.

He believes the current squad have enough talent and will just need a few quality additions in the summer to turn them into major contenders for the Premier League next season.
