Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has hinted that he has no plans to follow former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson into retirement.

As reported by Sky Sports, the Gunners chief, who looks set to lead his side to Old Trafford later this afternoon, has admitted that he doesn't know what his former rival does with his day. 

Wenger did, however, go on to admit that, much like Ferguson, he's a big fan of horses, but revealed that his back would prevent him from riding them at this point in his life. 


Speaking ahead of today's Premier League showdown, the Arsenal boss stated: "Sometimes I think, 'What is he (Sir Alex Ferguson) doing all day.' But he looks very happy in his retirement.

"He is lucky because he is interested in horses as well. When he gets up in the morning, he can go to horses, practise or training.

"I love horses as well but I don't go to races. I like horses in general because I am a farmer.

"I rode them when I was a kid but now? No, my back could not take any riding."

Wenger will no doubt be desperate to ruin Ferguson's day today, however, as the north London outfit look to secure their place in the top three with a victory over United. 

There's work to do

One thing's for sure, there's a great deal of work to do for Wenger before he calls it quits in north London. At the end of the day, the Arsenal boss will be desperate to to win one more Premier League title over the coming years.

But can he do it? Well, in truth, the Gunners do appear to be closer than previous years, but must add one or two world class players this summer to catch Chelsea. They're certainly in with a chance to bring back the glory days under Wenger.
