Arsene Wenger has revealed he will not retire and will remain in management next season - either at Arsenal or elsewhere. 

Wenger once again refused to clarify his future at Arsenal with his existing deal set to expire this summer. 

The French manager's future is under the microscope after a 5-1 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

But it does not seem as though the 67-year-old is willing to give up on management just yet.

He said: 'No matter what happens, I will manage next season, whether here is elsewhere. 

'On a night like that, I hate defeat and I want to do extremely well for this club. I feel a big responsibility. 

'You do not work here for 20 years and walk out of a game like that and whistle.'

Wenger also warned Arsenal followers to be careful what they wish for and that there is no guarantee of success if he leaves. 

'That's an eternal debate when you're somewhere for a long. Even if i go, Arsenal will not win every game in the future. It's not like before I arrived Arsenal won five European cups. 

'They'd played around ten European games before me. It's important the club makes the right decision. I care about this club and want it to be in safe hands.'

Despite admitting he could move elsewhere, he is clearly still concerned about Arsenal and called on the club to make the right decision in the summer.

He continued: 'What is important is that the club makes the right decision for the future. I do not work here for 20 years not to care for this club. 

'I had many opportunities to go somewhere, but I care about this club and their future. The club needs to be in safe hands.'
