Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said on Wednesday (April 25) that the timing of his departure from the Premier League club after nearly 22 years in charge was not his decision. The north London side announced last week that the 68-year-old would leave the Emirates at the end of the season, despite having one year remaining on his contract. Wenger had come under sustained pressure from supporters to bow out after a string of disappointing results. Arsenal, who are sixth in the domestic standings, can still qualify for next season's Champions League by beating Atletico and going on to win the Europa League. Wenger said he would keep working in football beyond this season but did not specify whether he would take another managerial role. Arsenal's Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan will miss Thursday's first leg at the Emirates, while Mohamed Elneny is out for the remainder of the season with an ankle ligament injury.Show description
