“Nothing [has changed],” Wenger said about his own future. “I focus on what is important for me, that is the performance of the team and what the fans are interested in is the performance of the team.”

“We spend a lot of time in our society to focus on things that are superficial and not take care of the essentials. The essential in football is that we have to make sure of one thing. Good players on the football pitch. That’s what we have to take care of.”
