Talking about his new autobiography My Life In Red And White, Wenger admitted he regrets he devoted so much of his life to the game.

He said: “Football was everything. In life you have to find meaning and football had meaning for me.

“Today, when I look back – I am 70 now – I am a bit frightened of why it had such a big importance to me.
