Wenger: European Super League is "inevitable"

Arsene Wenger

It was the 2003-04 season when he truly etched his name into the history books as he oversaw an unbeaten campaign to make it a hat-trick of Premier League titles.

Elite-level European clubs, he added, would be receptive to the Super League because it would enable them to attack the EPL's financial dominance.

"A domestic league will certainly play Tuesday, Wednesday". The Champions League doesn't sell well any more. "There's a contrast there because if you look at the audiences of the Champions League it is not fantastic". The next evolution? You will certainly have a European league over the weekends.

"It is inevitable. Why?"

Wenger said the move was "inevitable" because the big clubs would want a bigger slice of the money that comes into football and would be less willing to share it with their smaller rivals. Because the big clubs will say that if two smaller clubs are playing each other, nobody wants to watch it.

"It was not always easy to cut slowly with what you do every day and always you want to do it as well as you can and you don't want to forget to thank people who deserve it".

"They gave examples of creative ways to think and to act plus I think it is a special society with a completely different philosophy compared to other countries".

Only Brighton, Swansea City, West Brom and Stoke City have a worse Premier League record than Arsenal in the 2017-18 season.

"Because there was more questioning as well, you do not feel the same adhesion to what you do and when you stay here for such a long period you question yourself 'is it time now to go or not?'" "But it will be smaller if it goes to Europe".

It was the seventh straight loss on the road for Arsenal since the turn of the year, an embarrassing statistic for Wenger at the culmination of his reign of 22 years.
