Speaking to reporters during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Europa League meeting between Arsenal and Atletico, Simeone said that he has recieved no contact from the Gunners and insisted that he is "happy" in Madrid. "And for the rest I've spoken about it already", Wenger answered when asked why he's stepping down this year, despite a current contract that runs until next. I do my job, keep my routine, focus on what I do. I think it will be surreal for me when I don't work.

"I knew that was not the case". Will I take a little rest?

"My pride has always been to give my best until the last day of my contract", he said. "At the moment I work".

The Arsenal boss has been linked to both Paris Saint-Germain and the French national team.

Arsene Wenger has said he has "a high opinion" of former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique but is staying out of Arsenal's search for his replacement.
