The former Gunners boss has lifted the lid on what his life was like behind the scenes at the north London club.

The Gunners boss opened up in a frank interview with Christine Kelly, the host of RTL show What If?, where he discussed everything from his favourite Arsenal memory to his worst signing.

The Frenchman also discussed his plans for the future post-Arsenal, where he admitted he still isn't 100 per cent sure of the direction he is heading.

And when asked to name the players who most irritated him over the years - the ones he would have liked to have slapped - he replied: "Oh there's quite a few."

"All the big mistakes, in big games, I won't name names; they're stronger than me."

Wenger announced he would be standing down towards the end of last season, after 22 years in charge of the north London club.

At the time he had failed to secure Champions League football for a second consecutive season, and fans were calling for change.

Eventually the supporters got their wish and Wenger opted to stand down, with former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery being named his successor.
