The Arsenal boss, speaking to beIN Sports prior to Thursday’s vote, spoke of the importance of Britain voting to remain as part of the EU, claiming the world will only survive if people work together.

However, that warning has gone unheeded. Britain has voted to exit the EU with 51.9 per cent backing the Leave campaign.

The British pound has fallen to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 while David Cameron has announced he will be stepping down as Prime Minister.

Wenger on the potential impact of Brexit

“The modern world can create fear but maybe we have to think as well about potential,” Wenger was quoted as saying by Goal. “I can understand that people are scared to lose their culture, but the world will only survive if we work all together. That’s what I believe.”

On the potential impact Brexit could have on the Premier League and its clubs’ ability to sign top players from abroad, Wenger added: “In life you have to be confronted with quality, to improve you have to be confronted with quality.

“To ignore the quality and say let’s remain amongst them ourselves doesn’t work, because now they are controlling with the best players in the world.”
