Arsene Wenger says European Super League will ultimately replace Premier League

A season on-loan, either elsewhere in the Premier League or even with a top European side, could really be the making of Iwobi and would help him transfer his stellar global form onto club level, while removing him from the pressure that Arsenal present.

"I would say, personally, from 2006 to 2015 - it was certainly the period where I needed to be the strongest and did the best job", Wenger said. "Not the most glamorous maybe, but the most hard".

Wenger, a member of the UEFA Elite Coaches Forum, says the change will also help European soccer's governing body tackle the issue of shrinking Champions League audiences.

The long-serving French manager will leave the club at the end of the season after 22 years in charge after what has been a poor season for Arsenal.

"I don't think he had recovered", he said. I'm convinced what changed the game was the penalty.

Walmart buys 77% of India's Flipkart for $16bn
The announcement came a day after Amazon said it was injecting an extra $386 million into its Indian subsidiary. The transaction is expected to be finalized later this calendar year, pending regulatory approval in India.

Wenger has been keen to keep talk of his achievements and his impending exit down to a minimum and appeared nearly embarrassed when presented with the commemorative golden "Invincibles" Premier League trophy as his parting gift following the 5-0 thrashing of Burnley. "I don't realise it's my last press conference because I have just the Huddersfield game in mind, and try to do my job as well as I can until the last minute I'm here".

But, these fans have not seen it that way since they wasted no time in slamming him over his decision to suddenly show support and respect to Wenger...

And the former Spain worldwide believes Wenger's successor will find it hard to replicate the achievements of the 68-year-old. "It is a pleasant surprise".

"You have seen one aspect of me and that is a desperate guy who wants to win football games and I suppose that's the thing that matters and what is really a big part of my personality". Every day is not a pleasure. "I don't know, honestly", Wenger told reporters on Thursday.

"There is always a reason for the defeat, but if you isolate each game, it is unfortunate what happened tonight".
