Unai Emery is Arsenal’s signing of the summer - Robert Pires

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed who his proudest signings during his time at the Gunners were, as well as what he thinks his biggest mistake at the club was. "I've neglected my family, I've neglected many people close to me", he said.

Wenger left at the end of last season following a spell of almost 22 years at the helm, in which time he won three Premier League titles and a record seven FA Cups.

Unai Emery will have his first season at Arsenal soon and everyone can't wait to see how he performs starting August because the gunners have been under the management of one manager - Arsene Wenger for the last two decades so everybody will be looking to see how Arsenal without Wenger performs.

I learned a lot and reached my best football with Wenger. "He has a lot of experience and I hope for him and Arsenal that he is successful with the club", he told Sky Sports. "I was a little bit of a prisoner to my challenge each time". But it's a bone to chase at the same time.

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss would also like to bring in a new left-back if Arsenal manage to offload Monreal, with the Spanish full-back having been linked with a move to Real Sociedad.

"Often, I'm asked if Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira will be good managers and I always answer yes", said Wenger, now on the hunt for a job himself.

Today's news might be greeted as a validation for the #WengerOut crowd of Arsenal FC supporters who were so loud during the past couple of seasons.

"It's an obsession which bounces around your head day and night. That is the question I need to answer in the next 2-3 months". "You wake up at 3am thinking about team selection, tactics, formation..."

Wenger also admitted he has to keep up his running because he loves a trip to a French patisserie - and that if he were president of France, he would introduce compulsory football to every school.
