Arsène Wenger frustrated that his age of influence is in the speculations about his future at Arsenal. The 68-year-old manager of the London club, only wants his results to be assessed.

“As you get older, you have to focus on to do well for the club and you ignore all of the others. The older you get, the more ageism,” says Wenger, who himself does not intend to leave, at beIN Sports.

“I accept it as there are consequences to be attached to the results if that are not good,” he continues. “But I have trouble with the recurring stories about how long you are at the club and how old you are. I have to accept it, because I have a public function and have the results books. I accept the if I be judged.”
