Wenger rejects Barca links

Arsenal Coach Arsene Wenger has ruled himself out of the race to replace Luis Enrique at Barcelona at the end of the season.

The 67-year-old has been one of a number of names linked to the post, with his own future in North London uncertain as he looks set to miss out on another league title and his side trail Bayern Munich 5-1 after the first leg of their Champions League clash.

"My preference has always been the same and will remain the same," Wenger told a press conference on Thursday.

"I am not looking for jobs in other clubs or jobs off other people.

"I am focused on me, getting to the next level and trying to improve and always trying to see what you can do better and reinvent yourself. That's what I try to do. That's basically it.

"I have been here for 20 years and I had many times the opportunity to leave, so I don't think I have to convince you that my preference has always been Arsenal.”
