European super league and Fifa's 'Project Trophy'

Frenchman Wenger, who is leaving the club after nearly 22 years in charge, was given a guard of honour by both sets of players before the kickoff and then walked to the visiting Arsenal supporters to acknowledge them.

And he finally explained why he enjoyed holding his media get togethers at 8:45am.

"See what he has done for the club in all those years, it's incredible and awesome".

"Why at weekends? Because the Champions League doesn't sell well any more".

Wenger has signed his past two Arsenal contracts amid supporter unrest over his continued leadership - but on both occasions the deal has not been agreed until the end of the campaign.

"If the European League comes, all the leagues will be smaller". "But one can be sure, I will visit India", he said. Today a guy like Kane, I don't know for much they can sell him. Wednesday night's defeat was their seventh in a row in the league and they are the only side in the top four divisions without an away point in 2018. To accept to commit to five years when you build the stadium to work with restricted resources and keep the club in a position where we can pay our debts back, I personally feel I did my best job in that period. Look at the audiences of the Champions League.

According to Wenger, that could become the norm rather than a one-off with domestic fixtures instead taking place midweek.

He added: "If you want to make it more attractive you have to go down to 16".

He said: "The European League will happen and it will be soon because it's a way for other clubs to fight against the financial power of the Premier League".

The only teams with a worse record in Premier League history are Derby County (22 games in 2007-08) and Leeds United (21 in 1996-97). There would be a trickle down into the football league too as it would be more hard for lower league clubs to make the jump into the top tier.

Wenger's decision came after years of unrest with broad sections of the Gunners faithful claiming it was time for him to go.
